Ooooh good luck! ^^ Sound out the word in your head if you having trouble.

ex. Digestion Di-ges-tion
ex. Porcupines Por-Cu-Pines

Just sound it out. If it has double letters like the word "letter", think to yourself: Does it look right with one letter or two? Picture teh word in your mind. Does * "leter" or "letter" look better? Ok??

*Leter means, "A leter of water." If you want "letter" then just sound out let-ter

Also, do what Derek does. Just think of a song, or some place you've seen the word before if your having trouble.

*Tgd*

Psh yeah! My spelling bee is on December 19th. I've gone to one last year and I hated it :D I lost lol
I'm one of the best spellers and I'm probably going to end up in this year's spelling bee too.. eek!
Advice? Don't be nervous. Drink water before the spelling bee, so your voice is clear and you will not pass out or get dehydrated.
Don't drink any pop or soda; that'll phlem (sp?) up your throat.
Spell those words with pride! Impress those other kids and judges with your confidence!
Okay maybe now I'm going to far lol.
Just don't be nervous; that'll mess you up! If looking at all the people in the audience scares the heck out of you, close your eyes or stare at the ceiling. If you don't know a word, just take a good try at it. You could get it right anyways :wacko:
I wish you the best of luck!

We don't have spelling bees at our school.

Good luck for anyone who has a spelling bee coming up!
Well done to anyone who recently has been in a spelling bee!

We dont have any spelling bee's but here's some advice

Take deap breaths
Try your hardest
Try not to look at all the people staring at you just look at the back of the room
Just concentrate on the word you are trying to spell!.

:D Hope you win XX

Woot guess what! I didn't know how to spell "parellel" so I got out of our practice spelling bee! That's one less chance of me being in the real spelling bee! WOOTNESS! XD
I just really don't want to be in it this year.
Too bad we have 2 more rounds of practice bees..
