  1. Good job Kassey !! I like that your explanations were very clear and I like your pictures. Good job again keep up the good work !!

  2. AWESOME JOB Kassey! I really like how you explained your answers through pictures and you explained them very well. I also like how you changed the colors of the words to make them stand out more, it made me feel good reading words that were in pink, blue, and green. I also thought your video was very helpful. But a suggestion I have to make your post perfect is to add a link next time but otherwise great job and keep up the hard work!

  3. Kassey nice job! Nice job using pictures as your questions and doing the solution using coloured fonts. It was a great time. it was entertaining, and it isn't really that boring. Add a link next time to make your post perfect rather than almost perfect. Great job and thank you.

  4. Good job kassey. It's great how you used your pictures to answer you questions. It's good how you used lot's of color in your post, maybe a link would help next time, but well done!.
