Grateful November
3817080664_d12eddb545

Happy Grateful November!

This month, let’s think, feel and act gratefully! Here’s how:

Think
Right now, take 20 seconds to think about 10 things that make you grateful. Try and make those things about real things, not just things you have or things that are pretty/cute. Think about really important things that matter to you and that make you feel truly grateful!

Feel
Join the iTwixie Bloggers Club and write a blog about how you feel grateful for your parent(s) or caregiver(s)! In a world where everyone’s always bashing parents, let’s turn the bus around! Let’s take a moment and express our gratitude for the people in our lives who are trying to help us grow up to be our best!

Act
Write a letter to someone who inspires you be your best, or to always try to be your best, at being YOU!

And be sure to keep checking back on iTwixie to take the Smart Girl Challenge on Mondays, Read with the brand new Parent/Daughter Book Club, and take the Word of the Week Challenge on Wednesday, and vote for Blogger of the Month, take the latest polls and much, much more!

Happy Grateful November!

Lots to come! Lots to try! All we need is to always be grateful for each other. Together, we are changing the world.

You go, girls!

Spiders spin “silk” that is stronger than the silk that we use for our clothes.

Scientists are trying to copy spider silk. How cool is that?

Word of the Week Challenge
iTwixie Word of the Week

Congratulations to @fundipgirl! You successfully completed last week’s iTwixie Word of the Week Challenge! Now, just send your parent’s mailing address to “info@itwixie.com” and you’ll get a surprise within the next 30 days!

Here’s the sentence @fundipgirl wrote using last week’s word, caucus: @fundipgirl Donald Trump won the republican vote in the New Hampshire caucus of 2016.

Way to go, @fundipgirl! That was a great sentence, but just one clarification: Donald Trump won the New Hampshire primary election, not the caucus. New Hampshire is not a caucus state, but rather holds a primary election. Isn’t this confusing?!? Only 13 states use the caucus system for the presidential primary. So, since this is such a challenging topic, guess what our Word of the Week Challenge is for this week?

Here’s the new Word of the Week: primary

How iTwixie’s Word of the Week Works:
Check with iTwixie every Wednesday morning to see who won last week’s challenge and get the new iTwixie Word of the Week. Then, take the Word of the Week Challenge! All you have to do is write a sentence in the comments section below, using the new Word of the Week. Try and write a sentence that shows what that word means to you. Get writing, girls!
