What is a Flaggerdoot?

Wildlife biologists use the term ‘Flaggerdoot’ to describe a group of jackalopes. The term ‘Flaggerdoot’ in the educational world is used as a name for a classroom of enthusiastic young readers. Flaggerdoots are comprised of students who read at the kindergarten, first grade, or second grade reading level. Each classroom is its own distinct Flaggerdoot. The readers in a Flaggerdoot are called Flaggerdooters.
