Read along with the Bee this school year

Each year, the Bee publishes the School Spelling Bee Study List, a list of 450 words to help students prepare for school-level spelling bees. These words come from a list of books carefully selected by the Bee for their engaging and age-appropriate content as well as their rich vocabulary. We call these books the Great Words, Great Works list.

This year's list is broken up by reading level

The 27 books on the 2021 Great Words, Great Works book list are separated both by grade level and the Bee's three reading levels. The list includes contemporary fiction, classics and nonfiction titles.
