Congratulations to @agm16!  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 @agm16 wrote using last week’s word, code: Some spies use codes to communicate in secret ways. I will write a sentence in pig latin, which is a type of code. I-ay ove-lay itwixie-ay. That means: i love itwixie. This is how pig latin works. You take a word like rock. You take the first letters away if they are not vowles.then you add ay at the end with the letters that you took away. So rock would become ock-ray. If the word starts with a vowle you kust add ay at the end so apple would become apple-ay. I-aay ove-lay odes-cay!

We had to post the entire paragraph – it was just too fun! Way to go, @agm16!

Smart Girl Challenge for Hanukkah!
iTwixie Smart Girl Challenge

For Hanukkah, we’ve got a special Smart Girl Challenge for you to try. Check it out and good luck! Here it is:
juda found only enuff oil for one night in the tempel  but then a miracle happened and the oil lasted for ate days

About Hanukkah
In 186 BC, Syrian soldiers took treasures out of the Jewish Temple and Antiochus put up a status of the Greek god, Zeus, in the centre, but it had the face of Antiochus! Then he desecrated the most holy place in the temple and destroyed the Jewish holy scrolls.

Antiochus then banned  the Jewish faith & religion. If you were found out you and all your family were killed. He made the Temple into a shrine to Zeus. When soldiers tried to force Mattathias to make an offering to Zeus in his village, Mattathias refused, and killed a Syrian Soldier! Mattathias’s sons joined him and killed the other soldiers in the village. Then, Mattathias’s son Judah  took charge of the freedom fighters. Judah’s nickname was ‘Maccabee’ which come from the Hebrew word for hammer. He and his troops fought an undercover war for three years and then, finally, defeated them. Whew!

When they got back to Jerusalem, the Temple was in ruins. The statue of Zeus/Antiochus was still standing. So Judah and his freedom fighters cleaned the Temple and rebuilt the Jewish altar. On 165 BC, exactly three years after the statue was put up, the altar and Temple was rededicated to God. When Judah and his followers went into the Temple there was only enough oil to burn for one night, but a miracle took place and the oil burned for eight nights. That’s why Hannukah is celebrated for eight days! Happy Hannukah!
