Barney & Friends

First Day of School (#401)

Steven, excited about his first day at school, is helped by Barney and the kids prepare for his first day of kindergarten. Pretending that it's a real school day, Barney and friends help Stephen remember all that he will need to know for his first day, specifically, his numbers, letters, indoor and outdoor voice, backpack and school supplies, where the books are in his classroom, and to which room he must report. When Stephen expresses worry over remembering all these things, Stella visits from India, telling a story about an elephant and a mouse who learn that big things aren't hard to do. Just do them a little at a time. Meanwhile, Baby Bop, still too young to go school, sends Miss Etta and Scooter to spy on the kids' activities so that he too can pretend to be at school. Both Stephen and Baby Bob teach their young audience sabout school, how to do things for yourself, and how to use your imagination. [25 minutes] Closed Captioning
