 The Book Scavenger

 

Hello Mrs. Ross’ class,

In honor of the book Mrs. Ross is reading to our class, Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman we, the tech team, wanted to hide a book in our classroom to start our own Book Scavenger challenge. The blog will host the cipher code needed to help you uncover a clue. The clue reveals the hidden spot in our classroom where you will find the book.  

Mirroring the book, follow these steps,

1. Use the cipher code to uncover a clue.  

2. Find the book.

3. Read it.   

4. Leave your calling card in the book, by writing five adjectives about the book in the book and on the blog. Those are your bragging rights.      

5. You get to hide the next book and share the clue on the blog. You get choose the spot, create a new cipher code or use the one we made.

Remember, Garrison Griswold said, "Life is a game, and books are the tokens." 

 

Audrey, Congratulations!   You are the first to solve the clue and now it is up to you.  Choose a book, choose your cipher code, transcribe the clue and hide a book of your choosing. The title of the book she found was The Hotel Thief, a Sammy Key's story. 

Audrey has hidden a new book in the classroom. Her cipher code is mixed into the two sentences below.  Focus on the first letter of each word to make a word.  Good Luck!
