When my daughter was very young, I would often use the analog clock with her by saying things like “When both the short hand and long hand point to 12, it would be twelve o’clock. Time to eat lunch.” She asked me how an analog clock was read to tell time. I explained to her that the numbers represented a multiple of five. When the long hand was pointing to 1 that meant that five minutes had passed. When the long hand was pointing to 2, ten minutes had passed, and so on. She replied that it was too complicated and expressed amazement that I had learned how to read time. I told her that she would also learn how to read the time after some practice.

One of the topics in my daughter’s Filipino subject for the third quarter is the kaganapan ng pandiwa or complement of the verb.
This post includes a discussion of this topic in English (with sample sentences in Filipino) and two worksheets on identifying the kaganapan ng pandiwa in a sentence and identifying its type.
1. Kaganapan ng Pandiwa: This is a 6-page pdf file that explains in English the seven types of kaganapan ng pandiwa (tagaganap, layon, tagatanggap, kagamitan, sanhi, ganapan, at direksiyonal). I made this for parents and teachers.
Hello, everyone! I would just like to let you know that I’ll be posting less often because my husband and I have decided to homeschool our daughter. I’ll try to catch up on the worksheet requests when I can. Thank you! – Pia
The pdf file below is a set of handwriting worksheets with uppercase letters. The letters are grouped together according to similar lines or curves.The students are asked to trace the dotted uppercase letters. These worksheets are appropriate for preschool or first grade students.

I purposely did not include the letter ng because the letters N and G are written separately.
I made another version of the above set of worksheets. It asks the student to trace one dotted uppercase letter and fill in the rest of the line without having to trace the letter. Click the link below to open the pdf file. A thumbnail of the first page is shown below the link.
