I have updated my previous post “Pagsasaayos Nang Paalpabeto Worksheets (Part 1)” to include the Answer Keys and two corrections. You may see the updated post here.
I made corrections on two worksheets. In the worksheet Paalpabetong Ayos ng mga Salita_4, the second to the last word on the list should have been pamilyar instead of pamilya. In the worksheet Paalpabetong Ayos ng mga Salita_7, the word lukbay in item 1 should have been lakbay.
Please note that in the worksheet Paalpabetong Ayos ng mga Salita_3 where the student is asked to alphabetize the words, the Filipino word mansanas comes before mangga. This is because I considered the ng in the word mangga to be a letter in the Filipino alphabet. Since the letter n appears first before ng in the Filipino alphabet, I listed the word mansanas before mangga in the answer key I posted.
I checked the UP Diksyonaryong Filipino (Binagong Edisyon). This dictionary lists mangga first before mansanas. I do not know if they made a mistake in doing so. This is a good opportunity to ask a friend, co-teacher, or your child’s Filipino teacher about this matter. If you have an answer, please leave a comment.

Re the ng and n, I usually see NG used as beginning of a word and not in the middle (in filipino books and worksheets) which may account for the Mangga being ahead of Mansanas. Just my 2 cents.
Hi, Anne! The letter NG in the Filipino alphabet may be used at the beginning (e.g., ngayon, ngipin, nguso, ngilo), middle (e.g., mangga, langgam, angat, panginoon), or end of a word (e.g., tulong, lamang, tandang, tanong). Filipino textbooks introduce the letter NG by using words that begin with NG, but in fact, the letter NG may be used in any of the three positions I mentioned. Thank you for your comment.
