These are the Amazing Words for Unit 1 in Scott Foresman's Reading Street for 1st grade. I put these on my board each week and introduce a few daily (as is indicated in the curriculum). I have my students raise up one hand of "spirit fingers" very quickly whenever they hear me or anyone else say the word. They only see one week's words at a time but remember these words all year and get so excited when they can use them or just hear them being used. I also use some of them as challenge spelling words for my super spellers!! I have a polka-dotted Peanuts themed classroom so these go perfectly and would easily blend into any theme.
These are also great vocabulary words to help any child improve their oral or written vocabulary (depending on their level).
