PLEASE NOTE: Presented words towards the end of both Bees may NOT be on the study lists below. Pronouncer/Judges have additional words to present if they run through words on this list. The additional words will be age/grade appropriate. This is a competition and we want students to prepare, but also learn to muscle through unexpected challenges when they arise. They can do it!
New this year! The Scripps Spelling Bee organization has changed their study guide format this year. Instead of grade study guides, they’ve broken the words into One Bee (lower elementary), Two Bee (upper elementary), Three Bee (middle school). Please find the study guides below with approximate grade guidelines. We want flexibility in our Villa Bees so your students should familiarize themselves (i.e. Study!) words above and below their Bee designation.

*The 2020 Great Words, Great Works book list is divided by difficulty level according to the same scale you'll find in our 2020 study resources. This is fully adaptable to the reading level of your students, but as a general guideline, One Bee corresponds to lower elementary, Two Bee to upper elementary, and Three Bee to middle school.
