Big news! I’ve been working tirelessly for the past few months, and I finally have something to show for it. My first list, The School Spelling Bee Supplemental, will release within 24 hours.
I synthesized this list to be the end-all solution for the “Additional Words” that come after the study list in the Classroom and School Bees. After perusing decades of old additional words from years past and uncovering specific patterns, I carefully handpicked exactly 1,200 words from an assortment of older lists and from my own discovery.
When I was done with my selections and revisions, I put my algorithm to trial by fire and found that a whopping 44% of the words on the list were used as Additional Words in Classroom or School Bees since 2009. This means that 4 of every 9 words are former Additional Words.
To give you an idea of how revolutionary this is, let’s take the next-best list for Classroom and School Bee Additional Words, the Consolidated Word List. Only about 5% of the words on the CWL have been used as Additional Words, and on average you’d have to study about 19 words before coming across 1 Additional Word. That isn’t terrible, but doesn’t really compare to the list I’ve created.
In addition, the guide has an in-depth description on how the Classroom and School Bees work, the formula for winning your school bee, tips for Bee Day preparation, must-know rules, and proven strategies on how to handle your words during the bee.
The School Spelling Bee Supplemental is easily the best resource for the Classroom and School Bees, and is all-but certain to contain some of the elusive Additional Words in your bee.
How can I be so sure? Because Numbers Never Lie.
Stay tuned, and thanks for your continued support!
