Over 50% of all National Spelling Bee contestants
use Hexco products.
In 2014, we celebrated the 16th National Spelling Bee
Champion in a row to use Hexco products.
Verbomania | VerboMentor | VerboFlips | Verbo-Vocab Flips
Verbomania means "passion, craze, or obsession
with words!" Containing 13,000 vocabulary-enriching, SAT type words, this collection also includes
definitions, parts of speech, pronunciations and
language of origin. Learn a wide array of dynamic
and interesting nouns, verbs and adjectives from
the English language.
VerboMentor and VerboFlips contain the same
words with audio files for computer study (see
Product Key for details). Mentor software and Flips
are non-returnable, so try before you buy -- links
for free samplers and demos are on these product
pages online! Verbo-Vocab Flips contain multiplechoice questions, much like those used in the
National Spelling Bee written rounds.
Random Sequence makes it harder to 'guess' the first few letters of a word simply from its
alphabetical placement - ideal for quizzing straight from the book, Random Sequence also
matches the order of VerboMentor and VerboFlips.

Spelling Rules Book
New Bee Prepared
20 Years of Spelling Bees
Spelling Rules Book, subtitled, "Why Isn't 'Phonetic' Spelled the Way it Sounds?" is a 150page compilation that promotes less reliance
on rote memorization and more on the understanding of languages. For example, students
learn when to use -ible rather than -able, and
they will never look at the i-before-e rule the
same way again! Foreign language rules are included; an encyclopedic list of Greek and Latin
roots with definitions and words derived from
each is also included. A true sine qua non for
competitors!
New Bee Prepared reveals insights gained
from over 20 years of attending and helping
students prepare for the National Spelling
Bee. Off-list word selections and strategies for
study are analyzed, and suggestions are given
for conducting a successful bee. A list of over
35,000 "bee words" is included (no pronunciations or definitions), which contains 87% of
all surprise words used in the 2014 National
Spelling Bee and a comparable number of the
off-list words given at regional bees.
20+ Years of Spelling Bees is a collection of
every After-a-Spell newsletter printed since
1991. The newsletter reviews each National
Spelling Bee, analyzes words used, and presents articles written by top National Spelling
Bee participants. Percentages of words found
in our products, which were used at bees, are
highlighted, and annual changes in the NSB
are recapped. National and Regional Bee word
lists are also included. A free copy of the most
recent After-a-Spell can be downloaded from
the web.

that were never seen in bees at the time of its release. Some
words in Volumes 1, 2, and 3 have since been seen in the National Bee, but there are many more that could easily appear

Vocabulary Builder
New Written Round Mock Spelling Bee Flips
simulates the new written/computerized
rounds of the National Spelling Bee that includes vocabulary! There are 5 "mock" spelling bees and each mock bee contains preliminary and semi-final sections. Words in

slightly more difficult than words given at the
National Bee during the written rounds. There
are 380 words/questions in this product and
it contains both spelling and multiple-choice
formats.
Vocabulary Builder contains challenging, SATtype words to give National Bee contestants
additional words for practice while achieving a
greater level of comfort with definition-based
testing. Designed to help students learn words
that 'could' show up in a spelling bee and for
general vocabulary expansion, Written Round
Vocabulary Builder is available in two unique
formats (Mentor software or Flips for online
study; see Product Key). Each volume contains
350 multiple-choice questions using vocabulary words in sentences.

Valerie's Supplement
FEATURING: Musical Terms
NEW 2014-15 Collectors' Edition of Valerie's Supplement features our topical list of Musical Terms in addition to the Spell It list. This volume is ideal for advanced students who are planning on graduating past
their school bee, and for those who are anticipating moving on to the District, Regional, State, and/or
National Spelling Bees. Our topical lists can help keep learning fun while providing another way to study
for the off-list words found in most spelling bees.
Our Collectors' Edition series of Valerie's Supplement is enhanced with topical lists which make learning large sets of words less difficult by putting related terms together. Regarding Musical Terms, over
the years, we have come to appreciate the large number of students who participate at the National
Spelling Bee, and who also study and perform music. Scientists have also documented physical changes
seen in the brain as a result of musical training, and such is related to good memory and other cognitive
advantages. This year's Collection is bound to have you ready for an encore!

Spell Buddy for Grades 1-8
Over the years, customers have repeatedly asked, "How can I get my young child to be a better speller?"
Whether your student's spelling quest begins in kindergarten or in the 6th grade, realize that there are only
450 words that are assigned for Classroom and School Bees, and only one speller moves on to next level
bee. But good spelling lasts a lifetime and provides the foundation for a better vocabulary which ultimately
improves test scores all the way into preparing for college.
With a total of 8,000 words in 6 volumes, Spell Buddy is an excellent and affordable choice for parents and
schools who are dedicated to expanding a child's word bank at a reasonable pace. Each book contains
words that have been ferreted and swapped among spellers, and many have been used in official classroom
bees for decades. Note, that Spell Buddy does not replace the official "annual" list put out by Scripps' National Spelling Bee, but contains words used in past classroom and school spelling bees. Some words have
also appeared as off-list words, so words in this list 'could' appear at any given spelling bee. Perfect for BEE
CLUBS!
Contains a "Spelling Schedule" - Choose grade level. See inside for details and product
