Spelling bees improve students' spelling, increase their vocabularies, and develop correct English usage.
Students improve their spelling, increase their
vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop correct English. As a
result, they read and write more effectively and score higher on
standardized tests and college prep tests and beyond. The impact
lasts a lifetime.
Students learn word etymology and country of
origin, the meanings of prefixes and suffixes, and spelling rules.
By studying words grouped in thematic categories, spellers not only
acquire knowledge but also develop cognitive skills and increased
understanding of ideas and values.
Students of all ages and background participate on an equal, competitive basis.
Spelling bees improve spelling and spark interest among the students.
Spelling bees create friendly, sportsmanlike rivalry among the schools.
