Classroom Spelling Bee: Friday, January 11, 2019
School Spelling Bee: Thursday, January 17, 2019
Each student will choose a number randomly which will designate the order in which they will spell. Word lists that are used for the competition are provided by Scripps National Spelling Bee. Each speller will be given the next word in sequential order from the designated list. A speller can ask for the word to be repeated, used in a sentence, the part of speech, and its word origin. Once the speller begins to spell a word, he/she can start over, but cannot change any letter that was previously said aloud.
Example: The word is school…the speller begins s-k-h….If the speller starts over, he/she cannot change the k to a c….the word would be spelled incorrectly and that student is out of the competition.
The champion will have to spell his/her word along with a championship word. If the championship word is spelled incorrectly, all spellers involved in that round will be reinstated and another round will continue until a champion is declared.
