    Question Spelling Bee

    I am currently trying to start at spelling bee where I work. However, the age group ranges from 14 to 20. The average year of school completion is at about the 5th grade level. I am trying to find a word list of that level. The youth are currently not able to attend a "normal" school setting, but upon their release I would like them to have a better grasp of how to spell. If we can accomplish this, perhaps math will be the next challenge. Thanks!

    That's great, Sharon and I wish you all the luck in the world. I would contact the Scripps National Spelling Bee organization,

    http://www.spellingbee.com/about.shtml

    They should have loads of information to help you. Also, this website, below, looked interesting.
