FLABBERGASTED!


We love learning big words! Today we learned that flabbergasted means stunned and surprised.
We were FLABBERGASTED to count 13 letters in the word; that's one half of the alphabet!
Michael- I was flabbergasted when I came in my house and saw my giant birthday cake!
Ben - I was flabbergasted when I saw a skunk in my house!
Cody - When the bird pooped on my brother, he was flabbergasted!
Lauren - Mom got me a puppy and I didn't know. I was flabbergasted when I got home!
Corey - I was flabbergasted that I was so sweaty that tears came down my face.
Matthew - I was flabbergasted when I came home off the bus and my mom told me I was going to Florida with her!
Charlotte - I was flabbergasted when Mom bought me the AquaSand game I wanted.
Chris - I was flabbergasted when the pool was set up because I didn't think it would work and it did!
Hailey - I was flabbergasted when Heavenly squished the spider!
Heavenly - When my dad bought me a Nintendo DS for my birthday, I was flabbergasted!
Ashley - It was so hot and sunny outside that I was flabbergasted!
Jenna - I was flabbergasted because my mom gave me a pony!
Harley - When mom got a horse for me, I was flabbergasted!
Emilia - I was flabbergasted when I found out I could spell lots of words!
Hayden - I was flabbergasted when my mom and dad bought me a video game.

It's wonderful to see you all learning and using such big words at such a young age. It will do wonderful things for you when you are grown if you continue. People will be flabbergasted at how smart you are!

Hi Fish-
I'm so impressed with your vocabulary! I wish I could do Word Wizards with you- flabbergasted would be the longest mystery word we have ever seen!
