Spelling Bee Rules and Homework Checklist

Hi everyone!

We will be doing our class spelling bee's this week and I wanted to clarify on some tricky rules.

1. You may NOT retrace or take back letters once spoken them. You can NOT change the sequence of letters from when you first speak them. For example, if you are spelling the word "Teacher" and you say "T-E-C, I mean, T-E-A... and finish the word, you will be out.

2. You DO NOT HAVE to 1. Say the word before and after you spell it. 2. Say the capitalization or hyphen or other punctuation in a word. If you want to, you can, but you will not be disqualified if you do not. For example, "Ping-Pong" can be spelled "pingpong" and it will still be correct.

Good luck everyone!

Keep practicing at home and use that Spelling City website for extra practice and games.
If you need another copy of the paper, please let me know!

Here's the HomeWork Checklist for this week. :)
