Are you a teacher
looking for spelling bee lists to use in your next classroom competition? Or perhaps you're a
parent or student trying to "study ahead" on some typical spelling bee words. Either way, this list should help!
This page features 120 spelling bee words for 8th grade. It's a great study list for students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Use the links below to find our lists for other grades.
Give students lots of practice in oral spelling before competitions. Ask students to spell words frequently aloud, even from their seats, for a bit of "performance" practice.
Be sure to use spelling bee words in sentences when quizzing students. For instance, bizarre, should be clarified so it won't be confused with bazaar: The dog's behavior was so bizarre, the veterinarian knew it was gravely ill.
Our Spelling Bee Toolbox eBooks are comprehensive resources for anyone who wants a simple way to put together a classroom, all-school or multi-school spelling bee.
Each eBook contains 600 words and
sentences, rules, award
certificates, organizational tips, student helps and much
more. We also offer additional sets of 600 spelling bee words and
sentences for those who don't need all the other bells and whistles.
Also, see our 100
Difficult Words for Spelling Bees that includes definitions,
pronunciations, sentences and more.
Or use our Monumental Bee Word Lists, if you're holding a competition in which you require definitions, parts of speech, language of origin and sentences. In each eBook, you'll find 400 all-new words!
