Spelling Bees

Spelling can be a pretty monotonous task week after week. 
Why not try some fun online spelling bees for a change?

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical comedy.

On the website for this show there is a fun spelling bee game students can play!
First you choose a speller from one of the characters in the comedy.
You are then told a word to spell with options to hear the word again, 
hear the definition, or hear the word used in a sentence.

This site from the Bee Movie has a spelling game that allows
 students to help Barry complete each phrase. 

Are you the Best Speller? is a fun game that allows you to choose a speller,
select a grade level,
and practice spelling!
This game has options for repeating the word,
 hearing it used in a sentence, hearing a definition, and hearing a synonym. 

The Visual Thesaurus has a Spelling Bee game that is lots of fun!

The Times Spelling Bee has students listen to the words 
and try to spell them correctly. 
There is even a Word Help button to click in case you aren't
 sure which word is being pronounced! 

For little ones, the Times Spelling Bee has Mini Bees 
for ages 5-7, 7-9, and 9-11.

The Word Workout is a game where students are presented with 
a sentence that contains a word with most of it's letters missing. 
The students job is to type in the word as quickly as possible.
