  1. Great job, girls. You did a... well, great job. However, that was a rate: 2 squirts/letter. Sorry, but you know me: I'm a jerk with a brain. Well, I don't have much else to say, except GREAT JOB... again.

  2. Great job you guys. Your video made me really hungry. I hope you can bake me one too. Good job.

  3. Good job!! I agree with Glenesse, that cookie made me hungry. It really does look delicious.

  4. Great job, Suzie and Emily. I liked how you guys explained it very loud and clear with enthusiasm. Honestly, I was sorta staring at the rate cookie, which made me sorta hungry. Anyways, good job.

  5. Great job girls, I really liked the cookie part. I also liked that you used a real life example for it. I don't know if the video is suppose to be like that at the end so if it isn't try to fix it.

  6. Argh, our individuality, crushed. I'm just joking, guys. Very creative use of cookies. Our video, didn't have cookies... Just, great, now I'm craving cookies.

  7. Great job guys! I love how you used cookies as your props, you explained everything very well, however two squirts per letter is a rate not a ratio, but thats okay, and I think you got cut off at the end, well that's what it looks like to me. I loved the colours you used for your post Suzie! Overall, great job!

  8. Great job you guys! I liked that you had props, like the cookie. But I think you guys could've talked clearer. Great job!

  9. Nice video! First of all I liked the colours in your post Suzie, thats great for emphasis. I also loved the cookies, it made me hungry:) overall, great job!

  10. OH MY GOSH!! What an awesome post! I loved this video! Good Job! I liked the colours and the cookies in the video was genius! I wouldn't have ever thought of something like that! Good Job! I was really happy when I saw this post!
