Updated on February 18, 2011

I AM GOING ON AN AIRPLANE

 

I AM GOING ON A TRIP. I AM HAPPY. IT WILL BE FUN.MY FAMILY WILL GO WITH ME. WE WILL BE GOING ON AN AIRPLANE.I AM HAPPY; I WILL BE SAFE ON THE PLANE.

 

FIRST I WILL PACK MY SUITCASE. MOM OR DAD WILL HELP ME PACK. I WILL NOT TAKE THIS SUITCASE WITH ME; IT WILL GO IN THE PART OF THE AIRPLANE THAT IS LIKE THE TRUNK IN OUR CAR. I WILL GET IT BACK WHEN WE PICK UP OUR SUITCASES AFTER WE GET OFF THE PLANE. IT WILL BE SAFE IN THE PLANES TRUNK.

NEXT I WILL PACK A SPECIAL BAG I CAN TAKE ON THE PLANE. I WILL BE HAPPY TO TAKE SOMETHING SPECIAL ON THE PLANE WITH ME. I WILL PACK THIS BOOK. I WILL PACK THREE OR FOUR MORE THINGS, MOM OR DAD WILL HELP ME PICK THEM. I WILL BE HAPPY TO HAVE MY SPECIAL SUITCASE.

WE PACK OUR CAR, NOW IT IS TIME TO GO TO THE AIRPORT. I AM HAPPY AND SAFE, THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN. WE MIGHT DRIVE IN OUR OWN VEHICLE TO THE AIRPORT.

WHEN WE GET TO THE AIRPORT, WE WILL DRIVE INTO A PARKING LOT AND UNPACK OUR VEHICLE. THERE WILL BE A LOT OF OTHER CARS.

IF OUR CAR IS CLOSE TO THE BUILDING, WE WILL WALK THROUGH THE PARKING LOT, AND THROUGH THE BIG DOORS INTO THE AIRPORT. IF OUR CAR IS FAR AWAY, WE WILL GET IN A VAN WITH OTHER PEOPLE AND THEIR LUGGAGE. IT WILL TAKE US TO THE DOOR OF THE AIRPORT.

THE AIRPORT IS A BIG PLACE, IT IS OKAY, I STAY WITH MY FAMILY. I AM SAFE.

I SEE LOTS OF PEOPLE;THEY ARE ALL TALKING TO THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS. THEY CAN BE VERY LOUD. IT IS OKAY, I AM OKAY. THEY ARE GOING ON A PLANE TOO.

WE GET IN A LINE, WE ARE GOING TO GIVE OUR SUITCASES TO THE PERSON BEHIND THE BIG COUNTER. I AM OKAY. I GET TO KEEP MY SPECIAL BAG WITH ME. THERE MIGHT BE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN LINE, I AM OKAY, I AM SAFE. I CAN READ MY BOOK, OR PLAY WITH A TOY WHILE I WAIT.

WHEN WE GET TO THE LONG COUNTER, THE PERSON BEHIND IT WILL ASK US TO PUT OUR BAGS ON THE METAL SHELF BETWEEN THE COUNTERS. THEN THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE COUNTER PUT TAGS ON OUR SUITCASES SO THEY WILL BE SAFE AND WE MAKE SURE TO GET THEM BACK WHEN WE GET OFF THE PLANE.

NOW WE GET IN ANOTHER LINE. SOMETIMES THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN LINE THAT IS OKAY. I CAN WAIT, MY FAMILY IS HAPPY WHEN I WAIT QUIETLY.

THERE ARE PLASTIC BINS IN PILES ON THE FLOOR. SOMEONE TAKES A BIN OUT OF THE PILE FOR ME. I TAKE OFF MY SHOES AND PUT THEM IN THE BIN. IT IS OKAY. I WILL GET THEM BACK EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKING OFF THEIR SHOES TOO. I PUT MY SPECIAL BAG IN THE BIN, I AM OKAY. I WILL GET IT BACK TOO. IF I AM WEARING A JACKET I WILL PUT THAT IN AS WELL. I WILL GET MY JACKET BACK TOO.

THE BIN GOES ON A LONG SHELF THAT MOVES WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S BINS. IT WILL GO THROUGH A MACHINE THAT WILL TAKE A PICTURE OF EVERYTHING IN IT.

THERE IS AN ARCH THAT HAS TWO BIG SCREENS THAT I WILL WALK BETWEEN. I AM OKAY. I AM SAFE. I WILL STOP UNDER THE ARCH BETWEEN THE SCREENS AND HAVE MY PICTURE TAKEN, I STAND VERY STILL. MOM AND DAD WILL BE HAPPY THAT I STAND STILL FOR THE PICTURE.

I WALK AWAY FROM THE SCREEN AND WAIT FOR MY BIN AT THE END OF THE LONG TABLE. WHEN IT IS MY TURN I TAKE MY BIN OFF THE TABLE. I PUT ON MY SHOES, MOM AND DAD PUT ON THEIR SHOES TOO. I AM HAPPY. MOM AND DAD ARE HAPPY BECAUSE I AM DOING SUCH A GOOD JOB!

WE WALK TO A PLACE WITH ROWS OF CHAIRS AND A BIG WINDOW. I CAN SEE PLANES OUTSIDE. I MAY SEE MANY PEOPLE WORKING OUTSIDE. THE PLANES MAKE A LOT OF NOISE. I AM OKAY. THAT IS JUST THE WAY PLANES SOUND. I AM SAFE.

I SIT DOWN WITH MY SPECIAL BAG AND WAIT TO GET ON THE PLANE. THERE IS A PERSON IN AN AIRLINE UNIFORM BEHIND A COUNTER, CALLED A FLIGHT ATTENDANT. THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT CALLS OUT NUMBERS OVER THE LOUDSPEAKER. MY MOM AND DAD WILL LISTEN FOR THEM TO CALL US WHEN IT IS OUR TURN TO GET ON THE PLANE.

 

IT IS TIME TO GET ON THE PLANE NOW. I AM OKAY. I FEEL SAFE. WE FOLLOW A LINE OF PEOPLE TO THE DESK. THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT IS CHECKING EVERYONES TICKET SO THEY WILL BE ON THE RIGHT PLANE. THE ATTENDANT CHECKS OUR TICKETS.

WE WALK DOWN A LONG HALL. AT THE END IS THE DOOR TO THE AIRPLANE. I MAY HAVE TO WALK OVER A LITTLE OUTSIDE BRIDGE, IT IS OKAY. THE DOOR LOOKS SMALL AND KIND OF FUNNY. IT IS SUPPOSED to LOOK LIKE THAT. A FLIGHT ATTENDANT SAYS HELLO TO US AS WE WALK ONTO THE PLANE. I AM OKAY. I AM SAFE.

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT LOOKS AT OUR TICKETS AND TELLS US WHERE TO SIT. THE PLANE HAS ROWS AND ROWS OF SEATS, WITH AISLES BETWEEN THEM. THERE IS NOT A LOT OF ROOM TO WALK AROUND. THAT’S OKAY. I WILL BE HAPPY IN MY SEAT. WE PUT SOME OF OUR BAGS ABOVE US IN A CABINET NEAR THE CEILING.

I WILL PUT MY SPECIAL BAG UNDER THE SEAT IN FRONT OF ME. IT IS OKAY. I WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE IT OUT AND OPEN IT IN A FEW MINUTES, WHEN THE PLANE IS IN THE AIR.

I PUT ON MY SEAT BELT. JUST LIKE IN THE CAR, IT IMPORTANT TO KEEP MY SEATBELT ON. THE PLANE STARTS TO GET LOUDER. I AM SAFE. I AM OKAY. THE PLANE IS SUPPOSED TO SOUND THAT WAY. SOON IT WILL BE GOING UP IN THE AIR. I AM SAFE, I AM HAPPY.

THE PLANE IS READY TO TAKE OFF. I AM SAFE. I AM OKAY. WE GO UP IN THE AIR. THIS IS FUN! MY EARS MIGHT FEEL FUNNY. IT IS OKAY. I JUST TELL MOM OR DAD. I MAY CHEW SOME GUM OR TAKE A DRINK OF WATER. THIS WILL MAKE MY EARS FEEL BETTER.

THERE IS A LITTLE BATHROOM ON THE PLANE IN CASE I HAVE TO GO. I JUST TELL MOM OR DAD, AND THEY WILL WALK WITH ME TO THE BATHROOM. IT IS LOUD IN THE BATHROOM. IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF WIND, IT IS OKAY. I AM SAFE. IT IS SUPPOSED TO SOUND LIKE THAT.

NOW IT IS TIME FOR THE PLANE TO LAND. AN ATTENDANT TELLS US TO PUT OUR SEATS STRAIGHT UP. IT MAY FEEL A LITTLE BUMPY. I AM OKAY. IT IS SUPPOSE TO FEEL THAT WAY.

THE PLANE STARTS TO GO DOWN ON A GENTLE SLIDE OF AIR. I AM OKAY. I AM SAFE. IT MAY FEEL FUNNY IN MY EARS AGAIN. I CAN TELL MOM OR DAD MY EARS FEEL FUNNY.

WE ARE ON THE GROUND AGAIN; THE PLANE STOPS MOVING. I STAY IN MY SEAT. WE WAIT UNTIL THE ATTENDANT TELLS US IT IS OUR TURN TO GET OFF. All THE OTHER PEOPLE ARE WAITING TO GET OFF TOO.

WHEN IT IS OUR TURN, WE GET OF THE PLANE AND WALK TOGETHER TO A BIG ROOM. IN THE ROOM THERE ARE BIG SHELVES NEAR THE FLOOR THAT MOVE AROUND IN A CIRCLE SLOWLY. THIS HAS A PLACE WHERE ALL THE BAGS COME OUT. MOM OR DAD KNOW WHICH SHELF OUR BAGS WILL BE ON. I WAIT QUIETLY WITH MOM OR DAD. ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO JUST GOT OFF PLANES ARE WAITING FOR THEIR BAGS TOO. SOMETIMES THERE ARE OTHER BAGS THAT LOOK LIKE OURS,BUT BELONG TO SOMEONE ELSE. IT IS OKAY. MY PARENTS KNOW WHICH BAGS BELONG TO US.

NOW IT IS TIME TO LEAVE THE AIRPORT. I HAD A FUN TRIP ON THE PLANE, I DID A GREAT JOB! MOM AND DAD ARE HAPPY. I AM HAPPY TO.
