Learning English - Home Spelling Bee What are the different ways to play the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee? There are two different ways to play. In the Tournament Spelling Bee, you'll be challenged by a series of words, with the spelling difficulty adapted to your skill level. You can also try a Community Spelling Bee generated from one of our subscribers' word lists. How does the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee work? Each turn, you'll hear the recording of the word and see its definition (with words suitably omitted that might give away the correct spelling). In the Tournament Spelling Bee, the more words you get right, the higher your score will go. If you play a Community Spelling Bee, the words from the selected word list are presented in random order. What happens if I misspell a word? If you spell a word incorrectly, you can keep guessing for as long as you like. What is the appropriate age level or grade level to play the Spelling Bee? How does the scoring work? How do I see how my score stacks up against other spellers?

Who/What/Where/When/Why/How in the world... Happy Halloween SLPeeps! "I love when Halloween is on a Wednesday"... said NO person who works with or has children EVER! I hope you're surviving this crazy week! We've been having a blast with the "I Mustache You a Question" material I posted last week. However, it really helps me to see what students are still struggling with when it comes to answering and formulating questions. Some of my younger grades that are working on answering just have zero idea what the question is asking. You can grab this document of posters free here. Also... Enjoy Halloween!
