We also have printable and downloadable scavenger hunts: this is the Alphabet Scavenger Hunt, this is the Phonics and Grammar Scavenger Hunt, and this is the Literacy Scavenger Hunt. Need help? Here’s a crash course (cheat sheet) on phonics and grammar!

The teachers of The Community Classroom tutoring have created 3 literacy scavenger hunts for the community, all with the goal of having fun with literacy (and getting people out and about downtown for a Nice Tuesday!).
For the younger set, we have an Alphabet Scavenger Hunt. For older kids and grown-ups, we have a
Phonics + Grammar Scavenger Hunt and a Literacy Scavenger Hunt.
We have prizes for participants, including 30 gift cards for Joe’s Cafe and 30 gift cards for A 2 Z Science and Learning Toy Center (generously donated). And don’t worry, grown-ups. We’ll have crash course handouts (cheat sheets!) to help you out.
#NiceTuesdaysNorthampton are hosted by the Community Engagement Committee of the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) to generatesupport for small businesses and nonprofit organizations in Northampton and Florence through community-building activities.
