How to prepare
Participants should study the lists of words for their grade and the next grade up. For example, third graders should study third and fourth grade words. If the Bee goes through all grade-level words, the contestants will be given words from the next grade list.
The order of the words the night of the Bee will be different from the study list.
Download lists of study words for your child’s grade – and the grade above – and then practice, practice, practice!
