This a fun game that can be used as a great alternative to having a spelling bee. You split your class into 2 teams and they take turns spelling the words from the unit you have chosen following the Spelling Millionaire rules that I have designed. They have 3 lifelines (switch the word, ask your team, and write the word on the board). For every word a student spells correctly, their team moves up the prize chart and closer to the "Million Dollars". When the team reaches the $50,000.00 mark, they can add a lifeline (1 minute to use the dictionary). The first team to spell the $1,000,000 word correctly wins.
