Neat Spelling Bee Resource

As we begin Bee Season, the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee is a neat resource to help your student prepare. Spellers are given the definition of a word on screen. A recorded voice pronounces the word (multiple times if needed). Spellers can attempt to spell the word as many times as they like. After the first misspelling, Spelling Bee gives hints to help. Once a a word is spelled correctly (or the speller "gives up") a word map is displayed, given helpful hints to similar words and letter patterns. Try it out today!
