May is All About Today in History
First African American Woman to be named Consulant in Poetry

Welcome to Today in History May!

Each day of May, we’ll be taking a look at something historical that a woman has done. Why? Because, when we learn about the cool things women have done in our history, we get inspired. We see what WE can do. We understand that we are changing the world, every day.

Know of some cool woman who did something that you admire? Share it right here!

Here’s our first, Today in History story:

On May 1, 1950 – Gwendolyn Brooks became the first African-American woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, named Library of Congress’s Consultant in Poetry. Today they call people who earn this distinction a Poet Laureate. There have been 5 female poets laureate and 16 male poets laureate. Prior to 1985, they were called consultants in poetry and there were 6 female consultants in poetry by 1985 and 23 male consultants in poetry.

Gwendolyn inspired readers to think about what it really means to support human rights and the dignity of each human life. Her point of view resonates with us today. We, as a group of people on this planet, still seem to struggle with the idea of basic, human rights.

The first woman consultant in poetry was  Louise Bogan, who held the post from 1945 to 1946.

What Your Friend Likes About You
blogger of the month

See if you can write a blog post about what your friend likes about you. Try not to write it about yourself, but instead, write it as if you are writing as your friend.

Here’s how:
Pretend you are her.
Would your friend say that you are a good friend? Why?
What makings hanging out with you fun?
Do you have special things that you say to each other that make you laugh?
How does it make her feel when you and she do something to celebrate a special occasion?
Is she sad when you go on vacation or when you go away on a trip? Why? What does she miss?

Write a blog or write a paragraph right here! You don’t have to answer all of these questions. Let them help you think of ideas. And have fun writing this! This is going to be so fun!

Join the Friendship Bracelet Exchange
Friendship Bracelet DIY

Here’s how you can join iTwixie’s Friendship Bracelet Exchange! It’s so fun! Here’s how YOU can join the fun:

1. Make a bracelet and put it in an envelope addressed to:

iTwixie Friendship Bracelet Exchange
4551 Forbes Avenue, Suite 203
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

2. Write a note for the girl who’ll get it! Say something like: “Hi! I’m Rebecca and I live near Pittsburgh! Hope you love your bracelet.”

3. Put an extra envelope in, too, that has 2 stamps on it and is addressed to YOU! This is how you’ll get a bracelet back!

REMEMBER: Wrap the bracelet that you send in another piece of paper, or a little plastic bag. It will protect it! And be sure to write HAND DELIVER on your envelope so they don’t put your package in a machine. And then, your bracelet will arrive within TWO WEEKS!

Let’s see if we can get 200 girls to play this game before iTwixie’s 8th Anniversary, which is May 14, 2017!

Ready? GET SET! Go! Tell your friends! It’s so fun to play this game with a bunch of our BFFs!

Thanks, Honestly, for this great picture and DIY tutorial for making friendship bracelets :)
