Our spelling bee games provide a unique way for students to prepare for spelling bees. Switch it up, and try one of our new formats. Watch your students come to life and ENJOY the practice!
1. Draw a tic-tac-toe game on the board.
2. Divide students into two groups. Assign one team to be the Xs, and one team to be the O’s.
3. To play, one member from each team goes to the board. Pronounce a spelling word for the X team.
4. If the X player correctly spells the word, he may put an X on the tic-tac-toe game. If he spells the word incorrectly, he may not put an X on the game. A new member of his team goes to the board to wait for her turn.
5. Then pronounce a new word for the O team and proceed in the same manner.
6. The first team to get three Xs or three O’s in a row wins the round.
