Oh What Fun We Could Have!

Have you ever written a cipher letter? At the Letter Writers Alliance site I found a fun download I hadn't noticed before. It includes instructions and two cipher wheels to cut out. One for you and one for your cipher buddy. You can download it HERE.

I've written a cipher letter of sorts and it was great fun. This cipher download brought to mind a memory of writing notes in sixth grade. Surely you would not have guessed, but I was an avid note writer in grade school. When our class learned about Vikings and their runes my best friend, Deanna and I began writing notes in runes using a chart such as this:


What fun it was sending secret messages! I wish I had kept all those little scraps of paper. I wonder if I would be able to read them today. At the time reading them became quite easy. Oh to recover the hyper-elasticity of a child's mind! I feel certain I would put it to better use now.
