How to Spell Like a Champ shows kids how to build
word lists, and organize and study them most effectively.
How to gain knowledge of etymology, word roots, and spelling
patterns from English and other languages. Here are commonly
missed words and word patterns— and those feisty (who said
“i before e except after c”?) words that don’t fit any
pattern. Synonyms, antonyms, eponyms. Suffixes and prefixes.
Plus, a whole chapter of word searches and other
skill-building games enforces the lessons learned. The book
is also a spelling bee primer for the ten million kids who
participate in Scripps spelling bees on the local level. It
tells what to study, how to study, how much to study.
Readers learn what to expect in a bee—whether a classroom
contest or the Scripps National Final—and how they can make
it through each round by asking the right questions and
using their well-honed instincts. Included is an audio CD
featuring Dr. Jacques Bailly himself, the official voice of
the National Spelling Bee as heard on ABC, ESPN, and in the
No comments posted.
