This is a new version of the Filipino alphabet handwriting worksheets I made in 2012. This 7-page pdf file aims to help a child practice writing the 28 letters of the Filipino alphabet. Each page has four letters and each letter is accompanied by a word (and its illustration) that begins with or uses the letter. Thumbnails of the worksheets are shown below.
I found a nice font with animals called Nina’s Animals, created in 1998 by GorrilaBlu (freeware license). I used the font to make a 3-page animal alphabet.
Except for the following animals, all the other animal images were obtained from Nina’s Animals font:
- the ant and queen bee images are from wpclipart.com;
- the pig, octopus, and zebra images are from clker.com;
- the lion, newt, urial, xenops, and yak are by samutsamot_mom—that’s me!
The thumbnails of the pdf file are shown below. It’s a teaching tool, not a worksheet. You may print and distribute the file to your students or children, but please do not distribute it for profit.
Nouns (mga pangngalan) have several functions. Identifying a noun’s grammatical case is referring to the noun’s use or function in relation to the other words in the phrase, clause, or sentence.
The most common cases of nouns are the subjective case (kaukulang palagyo), the objective case (kaukulang palayon), and the possessive case (kaukulang paari). Continue reading
I am currently homeschooling my daughter for sixth grade. She is reading the Araling Panlipunan (AP) textbook Lakbay ng Lahing Pilipino 6. I’m sharing the test I made for her for the first quarter. You may use this to review your child or student for an upcoming AP test. Please do not distribute this 6-page pdf file for profit.
You may print and use the worksheets in this post for your students and children, but please do not distribute them for profit. All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom.
Isulat ang Katinig : This is a set of three worksheets. Each worksheet asks the student to write the missing consonant (katinig) or consonants to complete the Filipino words for the illustrated animals, fruits, and objects. The thumbnails are shown below. Note that NG/ng is considered as one consonant in the Filipino alphabet.
Pagpapahalaga sa Sariling Katawan: This worksheet asks the student to cut out the drawings and paste them in the correct box. For example, the drawing of the girl taking a shower should be pasted in the box with the label “Maligo araw-araw.” The third page of the file has mini-flashcards of the good health habits. The thumbnails are shown below.
A complex sentence in Filipino is called hugnayan na pangungusap or pangungusap na hugnayan. This type of sentence is made up of an independent clause (sugnay na makapag-iisa/malayang sugnay) and a dependent clause (sugnay na di-makapag-iisa/di-malayang sugnay).
A compound-complex sentence in Filipino is called langkapan na pangungusap or pangungusap na langkapan. This type of sentence is made up of two or more independent clauses and at least one dependent clause.
You may print the two worksheets below for your students or children, but please do not do so for profit.
Hugnayan o Langkapan_1: This 10-item worksheet asks the student to determine whether a sentence is hugnayan (complex) or langkapan (compound-complex).
Pangungusap na Langkapan_1: This 9-item worksheet asks the student to identify the two independent clauses and the dependent clause in a compound-complex sentence.
These two types of sentences are introduced in sixth grade.

In my endeavor to help my daughter learn about Philippine history, I came across the Seryeng Batang Historyador, a set of five books published by Adarna House. I bought all the books of the series from National Book Store (each book costs PhP 75).
For the first book Si Diwayen, Noong Bago Dumating ang mga Espanyol, I’ve prepared a set of questions about the story, a list of vocabulary words, and a worksheet on these words. Although the story has an English translation, you may want to keep the vocabulary list handy as you read the story with your child.
