Language Arts Mini Spark #65: Spelling Bee Prep

Let’s get ready for spelling bee season. Watch this video, pause to take notes, and work along with the teacher to practice words that are spelled wrong over and over.
Spend at least 3 minutes taking notes. If you are a spelling PRO, spend more time watching!!

*This is a great word list to use as a practice session!

*Make sure you know how to pronounce all of the words from this list. You can use the internet to help you with this. Type in the word and the word “pronounce” and it will pop up for you.

#1 Start with the first five words.
#2 Whisper spell each one 5 times.
#3 Now practice spelling one word one at a time.
*Look at one word quickly.
*Close your eyes and spell the word using the strategy that works for you.
*Open your eyes and check your spelling from the list.
*Keep practicing until you can spell all 5 correctly.
#4 Repeat with the next 5 on the list.
