Spelling, Vocabulary & Book Club

One of the most exciting ways to compete as an elementary or middle school student is in a spelling bee. If you're not athletically inclined (or even if you are), spelling bees provide both a worthwhile educational experience and a notable adrenaline rush. Succeed in area competitions and you'll be on your way up the ladder to compete at the highest rungs of the spelling bee circuit.

Purpose:
Spelling bees improve students' spelling, increase their vocabularies, and develop correct English usage.

Benefits:

  • 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.

Vocabulary

Studies prove that a strong command of the English language is directly linked to student advancement, grades and social success. To move ahead in kids school or excel in PARCC/SAT and other competitive tests, kids vocabulary level must improve and daily practice helps students build long-term ownership of vocabulary.

An educated vocabulary can improve kids public speaking skills and having a large vocabulary keeps audience interested the whole time kids are speaking. Many kids avoid reading tough material because they don’t understand all of the words that they are reading.
