Joysie 817said...Great Job!

I loved your post! The pictures were so clear and colorful. Your post explained how to add fractions. This helped me with my homework.

I think that you did a great job, but I found some errors. Some are spelling/grammar mistakes. Like in the first sentence you said "Fractions is what we did today." Isn't it supposed to be 'Fractions

arewhat we did today.'But other than that, I think you did an awesome job! ☺
