These three worksheets
use spelling bee practice words from our spelling bee
word lists and the free Spelling
Bee Bonus Bundle.
It's great when students study word lists on their own and with each other. But it's also helpful for students to WRITE these key words many times. After writing words several times, many students are better able to remember how to spell the words than when they engage only in oral practice.
These worksheets are
just one way that you can provide solid written spelling practice for
your students. You can find more ideas on our spelling
homework page, and other pages throughout this site.
This worksheet packet also includes a page on alphabetical order and a fun fill-in word puzzle. What better ways to work on those spelling bee words?

Variety is the spice of life, so they say, and that's certainly true when trying to motivate reluctant students to study spelling bee words!
True, many kids are driven and self-motivated. But if you're holding a competition in which you want ALL students to participate, you'll have to think of some fun ways to draw everyone into the preparation.
Here are two fun classroom games:
Step Up is a fun spelling bee team game. When all the team members spell correctly, the team moves ahead. It can be used with any set of words and can be used with most grades.
Silent Spelling Bee Games It's a whole different game when students are working silently! We think you'll like this twist.
Kids will enjoy practicing for spelling bees when you let them try our online spelling games
or one of our classroom spelling
word games. There are OODLES of spelling games, activities and worksheets for all ages and abilities.
After you've tried several of the suggestions listed here, your kids will have had lots of varied practice opportunities. The rest of the practice will be up to them!
