a spelling tip

While prepping your reluctant children for the upcoming spelling bee (yes, we found a local bee for homeschoolers), don't simultaneously read American Bee, The National Spelling Bee and the Culture of Word Nerds. After reading about 9 year olds who can spell regicide, caldera, and anemology without a hitch, it makes a parent unnecessarily agitated when the 12 year old misses such softballs as tomb, gene, and volley.
