Advertise in advance(fliers), get the kids and parents excited about it. Have a great reward. Find judges to set on a panel and score answers. Get your spelling list ready. Write down specific rules. Clearly state them.Have an approximate time frame. Have a good moderator.Clear the time, place and date with school.Make sure you get a good crown in the audience. Invite parents, other teachers, friends, family PTA etc.Keep it fun. Sometimes a good theme with decorations works well.

Relist: I prefer a second opinion.
I'd like additional information from others who've implemented a spelling bee.
Expert:  Rsposta4u replied 8 years ago.

Terry did offerer you very good information. I will expand on her information an provide you some additional links. As a retired teacher I can add the following.


Spelling Bees can be fun for all involved. Planning is very important. Many weeks before the contest, it is good to let the children and parents know about the up coming Spelling Bee. Have the children prepaid posters about the Spelling Bee, for the school to display. Send several letters, notes, fliers, to the parents making them aware of the Spelling Bee. Often the community can help with businesses making donations for prizes, awards and such. Some may even print advertisements for the Spelling Bee. Getting parents involved will lessen the burden on the teacher arranging the Spelling Bee. Working in teams to organize the Bee will allow less work to be put on one individual.
