May I Have a Word- Dazzling

In this clip, we learn that the word dazzling means something that shines so brightly that it is almost blinding! Dazzling can also mean something that really surprises or impresses you with how good it is. For example, a baseball pitcher might hit a dazzling homerun or you might dazzle your teacher with how well you did on a test. Maybe your mom and dad have been dazzled by how clean your room was!
