Episode 106: Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship/ Daniel Plays at the Castle

Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship
Daniel has come to play with Miss Elaina today! They decide to play “outer space,” but Miss Elaina gets upset when her cardboard telescope and spaceship accidentally break. Her mother, Lady Elaine, helps the friends see that they can still have fun together, even without the toys – just because they’re friends! They use their imaginations to keep playing, which is just as much fun!

Daniel Plays at the Castle
Daniel is visiting Prince Wednesday at the Castle and Daniel is excited about all the things Prince Wednesday has in his room – especially his rock collection. But the rocks aren’t for playing – they’re just for looking. Daniel and Prince Wednesday learn that friendship is about more than just playing with each other’s toys – it’s about being together!

Learning Goals
The learning goal of this episode is to help children learn about friendship.
The strategy song of this episode is: A friend just wants to play with you.

Fred Rogers Timeless Wisdom
“It’s you I like. It’s not the things you wear. It’s not the way you do your hair.
It’s you I like. The way you are right now, way down deep inside you. Not the things that hide you. Not your toys, they’re just beside you.”
-Fred Rogers
