Miss Whitten shares library book Pete the Cat: The Wheels on the Bus with her class in the Johnson lobby. The class was waiting for their bus to pick them up for a field trip to Carter Mountain. I could hear the singing all the way from the library!

Three year old pre-school students search for treasures in a Nature Scavenger Hunt around the Johnson grounds. Groups were asked to find all sorts of objects, including leaves, rocks, sticks, and flowers. Once they were warmed up, hunters searched for shapes, colors, and other descriptive words they’ve practiced in class. For example, teams searched for smooth and rough items, items shaped like triangles, squares, and circles, and colorful items that were red, yellow, and green.
