Jenna has always had a fascination with “secret codes”. She enjoys translating and sending coded messages. She has rewritten the alphabet and created characters for each letter.
For a while we were doing picture characters, but drawing an octopus got tiresome after attempting to draw it the last six notes or so. I am okay with stick figures and symbols – but when it comes to drawing, many of my animals end up looking the same.
So I changed some of the characters from the code that Jenna had and wrote a note and told her to translate without using the key. An early introduction to cryptogram. More clues. More puzzles. How fun!
Jenna’s last code was symbols drawn at random – but it’s something I can/could learn.

I am so grateful for her enthusiasm and her desire and willingness to learn and create.
