How do you feel today? (Filipino version)

This post is dedicated to Liza and Shelah, two teachers in Sweden.  Hej!

The 2-page pdf file below provides two charts that allow the student to choose how she or he feels today. All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom. You may distribute these charts to your students and children, but please do not do so for profit.

The first page shows a chart asking “Ano ang nararamdaman mo ngayon?” A thumbnail is shown below.


The second page  shows a chart asking “How do you feel today?” A thumbnail is shown below.


Click on either thumbnail above to open the pdf file.

I was unsure on how to translate the question to Filipino. I could not use “Ano ang pakiramdam mo ngayon?” because the word pakiramdam refers to how one feels physically.

If you have a better Filipino translation for the question “How do you feel today?”, please leave a comment. If you would like to suggest better descriptions of what I wrote on the charts, please leave a comment. If you would like to add more emotions (emotions you think your students may be feeling), you know what to do.

    I think, it’s much better to say “kamusta ka ngayon?” or “how are you today”

    Thanks for this 😀

    I tried to ask myself the question “ano ang nararamdaman ko ngayon?”, and after several seconds of introspection, I realized that it’s perhaps the most fitting translation. I will use this chart, because it is a good lesson starter. Thanks again!

    Hello again!
    Thank you for your reply as well as for this post. I am grateful for this ‘warm welcome’ via a dedicated post. 🙂

    Perhaps another translation could be ‘kumusta ka ngayong araw na ito?’ ???

      You’re welcome, Liza! “Kumusta ka ngayong araw na ito?” would translate to “How are you today?” I wanted to include a Filipino term for feeling/emotion. If you need the chart to have this question, please leave a comment so I can make one for you. I’ll be happy to help you out.
