This year, the Scripps National Spelling Bee has developed an online testing platform that we will use for this year’s bee, since we are not physically at school. Unfortunately, in accordance with the Scripps National Bee rules, we are not able to have a spelling bee over Google Meet, which is why we are using the online testing platform they developed.
In place of our traditional spelling bee program, we will hold one schoolwide competition through an online spelling test. The first step to spelling bee participation is for you to register for the Scripps National Spelling Bee's online testing platform by visiting https://online-test.spellingbee.com.
We encourage you to watch this video tutorial that will walk you through the registration process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXzjpnMijc
Once you have registered, we will be able to assign the test to your child. Your child must complete the test before the given deadline, and these tests can be taken on any device with a web browser, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
Our school champion will move on to represent Lake Elkhorn Middle School in the Howard County Library System’s regional spelling bee program, which also may include online tests in lieu of in-person spelling bee events.
The first step to spelling bee participation is to register at online-test.spellingbee.com. You must register your child by January 8, and your child will have to complete the online spelling bee [test] on January 13.
If you have already registered in the online testing platform for another child, you can log in to your account and add an additional child to that same parent account. There is no need to register a different email address for each child in your household.
Once registered, we encourage your child to spend time reviewing the spelling bee study list.
Please reach out to Ms. Jones, ELA team leader and spelling bee coordinator, f you have any questions about our school spelling bee program. We look forward to having your child compete to represent our school!
