  3. Encourage students to study and practice the words on the list individually or in pairs.

Competition:

  3. Read a word aloud from the spelling word list.
  4. The selected student must spell the word correctly within a given time limit (e.g., 30 seconds).

  6. Continue the competition until there is only one student left standing as the spelling bee champion.
