We loved making our “Amazing Apple” Treats from our “Amazing Women” article! News2You always provides such a great recipe for our coffee cart and teaches not only important topics, but also necessary skills!
They aren’t the most glamorous of creatures, but surprisingly enough the #cockroach the symbol for long life, refreshment, rebirth, and rejuvenation. In animal totem cockroaches give new perspective of yourself in line with your emotion, state of your mind and spirituality. Pretty neat huh?

Regrann from @nativeprovince - Happy Saturday beautiful humans! It's #spiritualsaturday time and this time we want to highlight Ambahan - traditional poetry by the Mangyan's of The Philippines. The language shown here predates Spanish setting foot on the sandy beds of The Philippines. .
A "dying" language that few are very fluent in.
This beautiful poem is about friendship, love and honour, they would often etch these poems on bamboo and give them as keepsakes to their special ones, a sign of good luck and a reminder to the receiver of their time together. We also like to believe that’s it’s a beautiful way of preserving their heritage in an awesome sustainable way! Genius!
My dear friend, be welcome here!
Where, perchance, did you come from?
From the seashore ebbing low,
from the bubbling water spring?
If from the water source up,
let us talk a moment here,
in a happy, friendly way.
Even whoever you are,
we like to be at your side.
Find out more and even purchase an Ambahan Poem on our website!

Yesterday was #theveryhungrycaterpillarday and we celebrated by making our own version of the book, focussing on what we’d eat for 7 days and then how we’d feel at the end. There were some beautiful ideas, particularly Andrew who decided at the end of his feast he’d need to lie down! We used @goboardmaker #pcs symbols to support our reading, writing and communication and took our books home to share with our families! #symbols#sharedwriting#sharedreading @officialericcarle
