When asked about the secret to being a good speller, all of our master Spellers agreed that reading books and practicing in the car, at home, in the shower (and in the toilet) made the difference. Spellers also mentioned that writing out the words and looking in the dictionary also helped.The official word list supplier is Macquarie Dictionary.
