Secret of spelling bee is keep learning until you achieve your desired position. I learned the value of hard work by getting involved in spelling bees


-  Sanjana Mohan Malla

                      My name is Sanjana Mohan Malla. I am a passionate speller, currently in my junior year of high school in the North Rockland Central School District. My objective through writing this book is to share my experience as a speller and to provide guidelines to those spellers who are interested in spelling bee but do not know where and how to start.

                      The spelling bee is a challenging and arduous journey which I enjoyed throughout my elementary and middle school as a participant. Being a participant in many bees increased my confidence and helped me volunteering for various positions such as pronouncer, trainer and now as a writer. it is challenging effort because we have to set the goals and work towards it, but yet the results could be not in your favor. 

                     Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try again. Each time you fall, just take a deep breath and plan on starting again as I continued to participate in various spelling bees hosted by different organizations such as Scripps National Spelling Bee, North South Foundation, and the South Asian Spelling Bee.  I still continue my journey, not by taking part in the spelling bee, but by volunteering for the organizations that host the spelling bees and now

I am euphoric to continue my journey in it by sharing my experiences with all of you through this guide.

                     Unlike other challenges, the spelling bee is unique. It provides you the foundation to develop goals and work towards them beginning at a very young age. During this journey, you will develop the skills to set goals and will be more evolved.

                      Another aspect of the importance of the spelling bee is that learning English plays an important part in our lives as it is the most common language spoken in the world.  Since English is influenced by several other languages and cultures, we will be able to understand the patterns of different languages as well as develop a passion towards their cultures too.

                     When I first started the spelling bee journey, I had no sources and sponsors to push me towards achieving that interest. I lost few years to reach to participate in Scripps as our area had no sponsors.  when we got a sponsor, I had no idea where to start. This situation prompted me to write this book and help other students looking for information. based on my knowledge and experience I am thinking this guide will provide  the information in one place to the aspiring spellers, and promote the value of learning among students.


On a final note, the spelling bee gives  a lot of self-confidence. No matter where you end your spelling bee career you are still a champion.

Remember never to give up

Have fun and good luck!!!

What's in the book


       SPELLING ESSENCE  for beginners. The book is divided into the following sections for easy understanding and form a logical and method based learning experience.

Chapter 1

About Spelling Bee  :

​​​​​​​This Chapter speaks about all the spelling bees that I have participated, It includes info about bee, how to prepare for it and rewards you get by participating in it.

Chapter 2

Importance of Spelling Bee preparations  : 

This chapter speaks about how to study for the spelling bee and train you. There are tons of words to study for the spelling bee, if we don't adopt a process of breaking down into small pieces and studying for it, it may be hard for us to recall all the words. Underling pronunciation dialect is imperative for any spelling bee.

Chapter 3

General Spelling rules  : 

Explains very basic rules. Knowing few rules will help you identify the pattern of the words and remember them, don't forget every rule will have exception too. I have listed the exceptions too.

Chapter 4

Homonyms/Homophones & Homographs  :

Knowing homonyms, homophones and homographs are very crucial for any spelling bee. We could easily get tripped with the words, e.g., if pronouncer asks for word ate, and if one don't know the difference between ate and eight, one could spell later and be out of the contest.

Chapter 5

Importance of Suffix and Prefix  :

When you learn prefixes and suffixes, you get a sense of the construction of a word. The word can be analyzed into its root parts, including any prefixes or suffixes. Many words are constructed with such roots.

                      During one of my trips to India, I visited this village called Kamsalipalem. After my close interactions with the people and kids in the village, I got to know about the scarcity of pure drinking water and lack of motivation and enthusiasm for education amongst the kids.

                      This inspired me to do my part and contribute. With the guidance of my family and revenue received from this book, I am contributing and working towards completing the water treatment plant for Kamsalipalem village.
