|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Going to School
Like other new experiences in our lives, starting school can bring mixed feelings. Watching this DVD can encourage children to talk about what they might be thinking and feeling. Such communication is one of the best ways to help children prepare for the changes that are ahead.
Episode 1 - Mister Rogers Goes To School
Mister Rogers introduces viewers to a school bus driver. She shows him around the bus and takes him for a ride! In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, it's the first day of school for Anna, Prince Tuesday and Daniel. They find out how good it can feel to learn something new.
Episode 2 - Learning
The children at the school in Make-Believe have a big decision to make. Which is a better way to learn -- taking field trips or using a fancy "learning machine"? In the end, they work together to find a solution!
Care-Giving Tips Booklet
In addition to the special features found on the DVD itself, a special booklet can be found inside the DVD case which includes print instructions for making alphabet soup and egg salad sandwiches, instructions for making modeling dough letters, and lyrics for Did You Know. Additionally, there are six pages of care-giving tips provided by the "expert staff of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood."
The original production of this Mister Rogers' Neighborhood program was made possibly by a grant from the Sears Roebuck Foundation and from PBS stations around the country.
