Did you know that there is one play you NEVER say the name of in a theater because it is bad luck? It’s true! You never say.... ehhh, we better not even type it.

This week Page is going to teach us about theater legends and lore (like why all theaters have a ghost light). Who knew there were so many theater superstitions out there?! We’ve got Author Bethany Hagadus, a show with a very dramatic dragon. Yup, you read that right. A DRAMA DRAGON. Ever met one of those? You can make a mini-theater from a tissue box, and get creative with drama games, too! Break a leg! (Oh wait- that's more theater lingo. It means... well, you’ll find out!)

D.A.S.H

We have a challenge for you that we call D.A.S.H. (short for Digital Adventure Scavenger Hunt). We plan to post a D.A.S.H. each week. Ready for your next D.A.S.H. challenge? Your mission today, should you choose to accept it, is to explore PBS Kids or PBS Learning Media    Once you are there, watch a video.  For example, you might choose this math video from Odd Squad:  Looking for something harder? Learn about some real world math with Chef Sue Torres.    

Many of the videos have a “Support Material” tab, with things like recipes, or questions to try.  Have fun exploring! 

Optional: post a comment about something you discovered-- on our FB thread  or tag us on Instagram  (@puyalluplibrary). Recommended especially for children aged 8 and over but fun for everyone!
