ADDITIONAL BEE INFORMATION:

Spellers participate in three or four-person teams and can review the appropriate grade word lists at home and with their team. On the day of the Bee, teams go on stage in groups (swarms) and are given words from the list to write on a small team whiteboard (teams can designate one writer or rotate).

The K-4 swarms are non-competitive. Teams will be told if their word is correct or incorrect, but there is no elimination.

The 5th and 6th grade swarms are competitive using our famous “two stingers before you’re out” rules. Challenging, off-list words will be used, if needed.

Bee teams are encouraged to wear attire (shirts, hats, etc.) to show their team spirit.

Bee participants should check the FBE website the week before the Bee to determine approximately what time their team will be on stage!

Family members and friends are welcome to come and watch!
