According to the UP Diksiyonaryong Filipino and the Manwal sa Masinop na Pagsulat of the Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino, the Filipino word for Wednesday is spelled Miyerkoles, not Miyerkules. So I made new handwriting worksheets on the days of the week in Filipino.
Although most calendars show Sunday (Linggo) as the first day of the week, according to an international standard, Monday (Lunes) is the first day of the week.
According to the Manwal sa Masinop na Pagsulat, the abbreviation for the days of the week are as follows: Lun, Mar, Miy, Huw, Biy, Sab, and Lin.
In one worksheet, the student is asked to trace the letters of the words for the days of the week. In another, the student copies the words. In the last worksheet, the student is asked to write the days of the week in the correct order.
All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom. You may print and distribute these worksheets to your students or children, but you may not do so for profit. Click on the link below, not the thumbnails, to open the pdf file.

Hello. Diba Huwebes ang Thursday?
Yes, the Filipino word for Thursday is Huwebes. Maybe you saw the worksheet where I jumbled up the names of the days of the week. In that worksheet, the student is asked to write the days in the correct order.
Hi, Malene! Someone pointed out my mistake. (Thanks, Helen!) I’m sorry I didn’t see it before. I’ve changed Thursday to Wednesday in the first paragraph, and updated the blog post. I apologize for the mistake and appreciate you for noticing it.
