Dragon Tales

Moving On/Head Over Heels

Season 3, Episode 17 of 29

MOVING ON Cassie's favorite big sister, Sophie, is going away to cooking school and Cassie is devastated to see her go. The gang tries to cheer her up about missing Sophie, but everywhere they go, Cassie is reminded of Sophie and is sad all over again. Enrique suggests that instead of trying to forget Sophie, Cassie do something that reminds her of Sophie. When that doesn't work, Cassie decides to teach her little sister to cook, just like Sophie taught her - and feels much better! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Coping with someone going away HEAD OVER HEELS Quetzal's brother Fernando is sick. When Quetzal asks the gang to bring him a delicious bowl of gazpacho, they are eager to help. To get there, however, they must pass by Trumpy the trollbooth troll. The toll? One cartwheel each. This worries Emmy, who's embarrassed to admit that she doesn't know how to cartwheel. Her friends help: Ord shows her how to balance; Cassie explains the "ready, hand-hand, foot-foot" method; and Zak and Wheezie coach her in keeping her arms straight. Emmy keeps on trying, and even though she's frustrated, she gradually improves. When they reach the bridge, the gang encourages a nervous Emmy to do her best, and everyone cartwheels successfully enough to cross the bridge and deliver the soup to a grateful Fernando. On the way back, everyone is surprised to learn that Trumpy is sad because he can't do a cartwheel himself and hoped to learn by watching everybody else pay the "toll." The gang, including Emmy, is happy to help him learn. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Learning a new physical skill with help from friends
