FAQs

Do students need to know word definitions for the spelling bee?

For the schoolwide and districtwide bees, yes, but missed definitions do not disqualify spellers.

For the classroom bees, no.

How do I get the list for the school and district spelling bees?

Just click the word list buttons below to get PDF copies of the word lists. You won't need the vocabulary and word lists until the schoolwide bee, but it never hurts to start practicing early. :)

Are there any other spelling resources available to me?

Absolutely! Visit www.spellingbee.com and click on the "Students and Parents" tab to find plenty of spelling resources and games.

What if I don't have a computer at home to access the Scripps resources?
