I ride the bus to school! A scripted story to help children remember to be safe on the school bus Scripted Story Created by Beth Vorhaus, Tennessee Voices for Children, Team Tennessee Assistant Project Coordinator
Everyday I ride the bus to school. At home I get ready for school, I get my coat and backpack and walk to the bus stop.
At the bus stopI say hi to my friends. I stay safe by staying out of the street and not running around. I know it is my bus by the number on the bus. I see the bus coming!
I remember to get in line with everyone. I keep my hands to myself because the other children will get mad if I push or shove. When the bus stops I wait my turn then walk up the bus stairs and say good morning to the bus driver.
I find my seat and sit down. If my bus has seat belts, I buckle up. If the bus does not have buckles, I must stay in my seat during the entire ride. Buckling my seat belt and staying in my seat keeps me from falling and getting hurt if the bus stops fast in an emergency.
I talk quietly to my friend sitting next to me. We cant talk too loud because the bus driver needs to be able to concentrate on driving and be able to give us directions in an emergency.
When we get to school, I wait my turn to walk off the bus. I tell the bus driver, thank you. Getting to school safely is a great way to start my school day. When the bell rings to go home at the end of the day, I will follow the same rules so that I arrive home safe.
