linda 8-17said...HI MARK! I noticed some spelling errors you might want to rectify.

Here in your free verse poem you stated...

"There are rules for multiplying integer,"

It should be "There are rules for multiplying

integers" With an "S"!You've been spelling

partitiveincorrectly.In your partitive division poem, you misspelled "pretend"

Now, I'm done with the negativity, and I'm onto the positives! HA, isn't that punny? Because we're learning about integers? Positives? Haha...

I like the colours you chose, and the way you used them. They greatly complimented eachother, and that was a major PLUS :) In my oppinion, I think that the last poem (your free verse) was the best one! I think so, because it was the one that rhymed, and had a cool tune. Pas mal, mon ami :)

- DUCK .
