A spelling bee is a competitive event that tests a participant's ability to spell words correctly, often in front of an audience or panel of judges. Spelling bees have been a popular and educational tradition in many English-speaking countries for well over a century. These events are not only challenging but also serve as a means of promoting vocabulary, language skills, and a sense of healthy competition among participants, typically students.

Here are some tips for success in a spelling bee:

Study word lists regularly.
Practice spelling words aloud.
Learn the meanings of words, as this can help you to remember their spellings.
Use mnemonic devices to help you remember difficult spellings.
Stay calm and focused during the competition.

To play Spelling Bee, you need to:

Choose a puzzle. The New York Times Spelling Bee offers a new puzzle every day.
Look at the seven letters in the honeycomb.
Start making words! Words must be at least four letters long and must include the center letter. You can use each letter more than once.
Submit your words. To do this, click on the "Enter" button.
Find all the words! You can keep submitting words until you find all of them, or until you run out of tries.

Four-letter words: 1 point
Five-letter words: 2 points
Six-letter words: 3 points
Seven-letter words: 4 points
Pangrams (words that use all seven letters): 7 points

Use the reshuffle button often. This can help you to see new word combinations.
Look for common prefixes and suffixes. Many words are made up of smaller parts, so if you can identify these parts, it can be easier to spell the word.
Don't be afraid to guess. If you're not sure how to spell a word, take a guess. You never know, you might be right!
Queen Bee

If you find all of the words in a puzzle, you will achieve the title of "Queen Bee." This is a great accomplishment, and it shows that you are a true spelling whiz!

Have fun!
