Secret code cracked by 40" wunderkind
Yesterday I was visiting a blog of a wonderful mom(pw protected) who I deeply admire. Her beautiful daughter and Piper are about the same age, but since she lives in NYC her daughter attends full day Kindergarten(sigh)...I saw that a code breaking exercise had been given to her daughter at school and I thought Piper might enjoy one. I told Miss P about the secret code, and her eyes lit up
"just like the Secret Seven Mummy?!"REDEEM THIS PIECE OF PAPER TO RECEIVE ONE COOKIE
(guess I should have read the fine print before I printed these out)
The concept was absorbed in less than 10 seconds and she blew through two worksheets in under 5 minutes! She needed help reading part of the message but was thrilled to pieces with the idea of the decoding secret meassages part. I need an ENTIRE workbook of secret codes! Anyone know of a good resource? I loved this exercise as much as Piper did!

Hey not all NYC schools have full day kindergarten!!!! If we don't get a full day UPK class for September I am not sending her. E is doing amazing at her little daycare.

Smart girl to break the cookie code.
