How do you know if a word ends in -ible or -able? What are those h's doing in "rhythm"? "How to Spell Like a Champ" takes children on a guided tour of the English language from antonyms to eponyms and suffixes to prefixes. Along the way, they will learn many new words as well as rules for spelling, memorisation tricks, word groups, and the etymology of words from asterisk to nudnik. Crossword puzzles and other word games let kids apply their new-found knowledge. But wait-there's more! "How to Spell Like a Champ" contains an hour-long CD that recreates the journey from classroom bee all the way to the National Bee in Washington, D.C. Listeners follow a fictitious speller destined for greatness and get to try their hand at the same words. They'll get a chance to spell it themselves before our main character spells it - correctly, of course! The CD replicates the ambiance and experience of bees at every level, culminating in the National Spelling Bee competition, when the CD features the voice of the official National Spelling Bee announcer, Dr. Jacques Bailly himself the official voice of the National Spelling Bee, familiar to millions from his appearances on ESPN and in two spelling bee movies.
