Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Daniel Goes to School DVD


Join Daniel Tiger and his friends as they head to school where they discover that learning and using your imagination is GRR-IFIC fun! At his school’s career day, Daniel finds that everyone’s job is important and that we all help each other in different ways. Then the entire class gets a very special visit from Prince Tuesday who takes everyone on an important field trip to learn about safety beyond the classroom. Finally, Daniel’s teacher helps him and his classmates practice helpful ways to deal with disappointment when things don’t go their way. So play along with Daniel and experience all the excitement of going to school!

Episodes include…
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.

Play Pretend – 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!

Safety Patrol – 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 Neighbourhood and they practice their safety rules all along the way.

Keira and Ave have really been enjoying watching the Daniel Goes to School DVD – especially Ava who loves to dance to the theme music and gets angry when all the episodes have played through.  If you haven’t seen Daniel Tiger before, its an adorable animated spin off from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and teaches kids valuable lessons about friendship, emotions and more!  This is a really nice collection of episodes your preschooler will want to watch over and over again.
