Welcome to the Loma Spelling Bee Page!
Each classroom will be conducting a spelling bee, sending 2 winners from each class to the Spelling Bee Semifinals. The Loma Semi-Finals will take place in the forum at 12:30pm on December 18th. In January, we will have the top winners from the Semifinals compete in the final Loma Spelling Bee. The finals will take place at 12:30pm in the forum on January 15th. We will also be awarding the top finishers for each grade level. The grand prize winner will receive an online subscription to Encyclopedia Brittanica.
So how do you get ready?
Step 1 - Students should start by learning the words on their classroom assigned level word list. Word lists are available at the links on the right.
Step 2 - Next, students should learn all the "Words of the Champions" for their level.
Step 3 - If a student has mastered all of that, he or she should begin working on the words lists for the rest of the levels.
Step 4 - If a student manages all of that, give him or her a pat on the back. Students can continue by playing the word games at http://www.wordcentral.com/
to get ready for advanced competition.
