Some of the important lessons kids will learn from the adventures on “DANIEL GOES TO SCHOOL” include: everyone’s job is important and we all help in different ways, and, if you’re not successful at first, keep trying, and you’ll get better!
The DVD has a run time of approximately 100 minutes.
The “DANIEL GOES TO SCHOOL” DVD includes the following stories:
“A Trip to the Crayon Factory”
Daniel Tiger, Miss Elaina, and Katerina Kittycat take a fun trip to the factory to see how crayons are made but, O the Owl can’t come because he’s sick. At the factory, the kids watch the crayons being made, and Daniel looks and listens closely. Daniel has an idea to take pictures at the factory and give them to O at the end of the day, so that O can learn about crayons too!
“Be a Vegetable Taster!”
Teacher Harriet introduces Daniel and his friends to the school’s vegetable garden and convinces them to pick out some healthy veggies for their snack. They explore the garden, picking and trying different vegetables…with mixed results!
“Line Leader Daniel”
The children are getting new classroom jobs at school. Daniel really wants to be line leader! When he doesn’t get the job he wanted, Daniel is disappointed. Soon he learns that all of the jobs are necessary to keep the classroom running smoothly.
“Problem Solver Daniel”
Daniel and Miss Elaina are playing with the blocks at school but they each want to build something different. They call Teacher Harriet over to help fix the problem, but she tells them to work out a solution without her. They do, and feel proud that they can figure things out all by themselves.
“The Class Votes”
At school, Daniel and his classmates get to choose their new class pet! Teacher Harriet explains that they can either get a bunny or a turtle. The kids learn what it means to “vote” and that sometimes it doesn’t always turn out your way. Luckily, ALL of the kids find something to love about their new pet, “Snowball”!
“O Builds a Tower”
In the block corner at school, O the Owl is determined to use all of the blocks to build the tallest tower in the world. After many failed attempts, he is frustrated, but Teacher Harriet and O’s friends encourage him to try once again.
Teacher Harriet shows the children a big cardboard box and asks them what they think it could be. Daniel and Miss Elaina have fun pretending the box is a space ship and a jungle boat, but O the Owl just sees a big cardboard box. With a little help from his friends, O discovers how much fun it is to pretend!
Today at school, the children are learning about traffic signs. Prince Tuesday comes for a special visit, wearing his crossing guard uniform. He takes the class on a walk through the Neighborhood and they practice their safety rules all along the way.
I don't know about your kiddos, but mine are kinda bummed to go back to school! This is so weird for me, because previous years they were excited to go back and see their friends. They need a little help getting excited about school again and thanks to PBS I think they will will! Even though I reviewed Daniel Goes To school PBS also offers other DVDS to help kiddos get pumped for school and excited to see their friends and learn fun new things.
The release date is August 18 so its perfect timing for Back To school time! The episodes are heartfelt and fun leaving viewers of all ages smiling :)
