About Samut-samot

Samut-samot is a Filipino mom’s blog dedicated to all Filipino students, parents, and educators.

While homeschooling her daughter, Pia created her own worksheets based on her own research about various topics taught in the Filipino subject, which is a compulsory subject taken by grade school and high school students in the Philippines. She posts her work in this blog so others may use them in teaching or learning Filipino. Since first blogging in 2012, she has posted hundreds of free educational resources.

She is also the owner of a TeacherPayTeachers store called Oliotopia, where she sells other educational materials.

She used to live in a big city in Metro Manila, but she now enjoys provincial life with her husband and daughter in Southern Luzon.

    I’m so happy that people care for the Filipino people out there. This was much needed!

    Thank you so much Ma’am for the worksheets. My daughter has learning disabilities. Aside from attending sped and therapies, it’s also a struggle for me to teach her Filipino and Math. This blog is really helpful for me, thank you thank you thank you for making my life more easier! 🙂

    Hello Pia!
    I have been using your worksheets since the pandemic started. I was one of the millions of overworked nurse during the pandemic and the stress of the pandemic had me bend over backwards in all directions as a mom. I cannot express how grateful I am that your content is available free for us. Though my children are not learning to read through their online class, I was able to teach them on the very little extra time we have. I have tried all possible ways to teach them how to read but nothing worked. Your reading materials are the most effective to them. You did not only help my children learn how to read but you also alleviated the guilt and anxiety I felt seeing them struggling to learn reading.

    Hello po! I am a mother of 3 at dito po kami nakatira ngayon sa Canada. Nagsimula kami maghomeschool last year at hanggang ngayon ay ginagamit ko pa rin yung mga worksheets mula dito sa samut samot. I just want to say how amazing and helpful your worksheets and flashcards are. Habang nag aaral sila ng french at english, kailangan ko ituro at ituloy ang matyagang pag gamit ng wikangFilipino. This has been very helpful. Maraming Salamat! Keep up the good work at more worksheets to come .. 🙂

    Hello Ms. Pia. I came across your website while searching for Filipino short stories that my daughter can practice reading. I surely did not expect to find a lot of resources in your website. Maraming salamat po for sharing these resources. I already bookmarked your site and will surely keep visiting in the future. Thank you again. 🙂

    Pia, a heartfelt gratitude for your patience and perseverance in creating wondering worksheets for Filipino kids. For a working mom like me creating reviewers and worksheets for my kids are very challenging, but you are a great resource. Maraming Salamat!

    1. samutsamotmom

      Thank you for your comment, Rizz! And thank you, too, for using the resources on my blog. More power to parents!

  9. Joy S de Guzman

    Hi Pia. I am personally tutoring my 3 kids who are now in Grade 10, Grade 5 and Grade 2. I must say, all of them benefited and are still benefiting from the worksheets you are providing here. They are very helpful and useful. It saves me time from making my own worksheets – and I am not even sure if I am capable of doing same good worksheets that you have here. You are heaven-sent! Thank you so much. 🙂

    1. samutsamotmom

      Thank you, Joy! I’m glad that my work has helped you and your children. I made this site so that moms like you would have more quality time with their kids. Best wishes!

    Hello Ms. Pia, thank you so much for your generosity, effort, and love for teaching. I deeply appreciate that you share your works to the public for free. Your explanations and worksheets are absolutely helpful.

    I have a 9-year old daughter whose main language is English (but she also speaks and understands Filipino a little). Her scores and grades in Filipino subject are incredible. But when I found your website and learned the lessons myself, she was able to understand the lessons as well. So, big thanks to you! I hope you will be given more strength, knowledge, patience, and wisdom to continue your passion. You are a blessing to us moms. 🙂

  14. Charmaine Bru

    Thank you for sharing your talents and your generosity ! I am from Australia, I came here when I was a baby, but growing up, I did not learn tagalog. I am trying to learn myself, while also teaching my 4 year old daughter. Do you have any tips for either her, or the both of us ? Thank you again =)

  15. Good day!

    Meron na po kayong Deped Calendar for SY 2018-2019? Maraming salamat po sa inyo. May God bless you more 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi! I’m sorry I won’t be able to provide a DepEd Calendar for this school year. However, a PDF file of the calendar may be downloaded from here.

  16. Cindy da Kana

    Thank you so much for all your work to putting together and sharing these Tagalog worksheets. As an American living in the Pinas trying to expose and teach my children Tagalog, finding your blog has been such a treasure! Maraming Salamat Po!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. Good luck on your teaching journey!

  17. Dharyl N. Bernardino

    I truly love your work! Very creative and useful! This would really help my Grade 2 students love Filipino more!

  18. jaja

    thank u so much for your worksheets. i always use this for my daughter. she’s graduating valedictorian by the way. your worksheets helped us a lot for her to be valedictorian, it made us understand the subjects easier and better. it made my life so much easier! Thank you for taking the time to do these worksheets. god bless you always!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Wow, congratulations to your daughter and of course, to you, too! I’m sure she (with your help) did most of the work to become valedictorian. You must be very proud. She has a bright future ahead of her. Thank you for supporting my blog!

  19. Lot Bisares

    Thank you so much for sharing your worksheets! It’s very helpful for us mommy’s in reviewing our kids in Filipino. May God bless your generosity.

  20. Maria

    Maraming Salamat po sa website ninyo! Gusto ko mag tanong kung meron answer keys para sa worksheets?

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Maria! Except for the preschool worksheets, most of the worksheets posted in this blog have answer keys.

  21. Dee Alday

    Here in the US, schools do not offer Filipino classes. Maybe very rare if there is. Filipino kids have hard time speaking Tagalog but many understand, not like Hispanic kids or other Asian kids. I’ve been looking for Filipino workbooks online but I always find Tagalog books but not necessarily “workbook”. This is perfect for my 6 yr old son. My other kids are in their teens and I have hard time teaching Tagalog when everyone in the house speaks English. I think I could use this for my other kids as well, maybe it’s not too late to start again:)). Thank you for your efforts and compassion in teaching Filipino. God bless:)

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you very much for your comment, Dee! I’m glad to be of service. Thank you, too, for keeping the Filipino language alive abroad.

    2. Kylle Morrison

      I know what you mean with this. I am a teen and I have wanted to learn Tagalog but it was different because my mum was learning English when we moved to the US so it’s a little hard for me to understand but these resources can help me a lot to help me learn Tagalog.

  22. Cherry

    I’d like to express gratitude to you! 🙂 You’ve made my life (as a working mom) easy now that I’m preparing my daughter for her exams. God bless you!!!

  23. Joepril

    Thanks a lot for sharing your ideas…it really helps me, I am not a filipino teacher but you made things easy for me through your own way of sharing ideas…More Power & God Bless

  24. EISELE

    hi! i just want to say thank you so much for everything that you do here. you are a blessing from the Lord. it’s my first year to homeschool my only son and I think we cannot survive our Filipino subject without all the help we get from this website. so we praise the Lord for you! this is so much a big part of our homeschooling. GOD BLESS YOU

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Welcome to my blog, Eisele! Thank you for your comment. Good luck on your homeschooling journey with your son! Homeschooling will be a challenge, but I assure you that it is all worth it.

  25. Ederlene

    HI! I’m from Rodriguez, Rizal. This website is so helpful for all teachers/tutors out there and most specially for me. I am a fresh graduate on Elementary Education. Thank you for this, it is a great help for me! Thank you! I pray that God will bless you more!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you for dropping by my blog. I hope your first year of teaching will be a successful one!

  26. mae

    Thank you samutsamot_mom for sharing your worksheets with us. I am homeschooler parent here in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. My son is in grade 4 now and it is our second year of homeschooling. He doesn’t know the Filipino language when we started homeschooling him and this helps him a lot especially the Filipino worksheets.

    Thanks again for your generosity and God bless you.

    Best regards,

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Mae! You’re very welcome! Best regards from your homeland!

  27. chicannylui

    Thank you very much for sharing this with all of us. It has been very difficult to find home tutorial materials for Filipino for my children. In behalf of all parents out there, thank you so much. There should be more individuals like you, I salute you! We should all take our part in using the internet as a sharing tool, not just a snooping around one. 🙂
    You are one of our unsung heroes. Thank you for your “malasakit”. We should all take time and give to others too. 🙂

    Isa kang huwarang nilalang! Dapat kang tularan! Maraming salamat po sa inyo!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you for your encouraging words. I am happy to help.

  28. Geraldine Cheng

    Thank you so much for your free worksheets! I tutor my son who is in grade 3 now, I think I have been using your files every periodical test since he was in nursery 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome, Geraldine! It’s nice to know that your son has grown with this blog. Thank you for using my worksheets!

  29. Miriam Garcia

    Dear samutsamot_mom, here’s another person thanking you for your beautiful worksheets! I’m trying to create a workbook for a non-profit org I’m volunteering with and I’d just like to ask your permission to include this set, as well as the other letters of the alphabet: https://samutsamot.com/2015/04/14/mga-titik-a-b-d-at-e/#comments

    This is definitely not for profit and I’ll be keeping your copyright and website name on the page. Thanks once again for sharing these lovely worksheets with everyone! I appreciate your dedication and your wonderful art!


  30. Vernice

    Thank you so much for making this website! I am a tutor and I don’t really like filipino as a kid. This website helped me so much to understand the topics better and free worksheets! I don’t need to do my own since most of the worksheets here are exactly what I need. I don’t write comments most of the time but I really appreciate all the effort you put into this, and you really helped me, big time! Always be awesome!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you for your touching message, Vernice! I really appreciate it. Thank you for supporting my blog. Best regards.

  31. aying

    Hi! what a wonderful site! maraming salamat for this! OFW ako, at mahirap matuto ng filipino ang mga bata dito kasi english ang unang language. kaya salamat talaga sa worksheets. printing them now. =)

  32. net cornelio

    Hi… I would like to thank you for all the worksheets you’ve done. its been of great help to me as a tutor! God Bless always. 🙂

  33. Dinna

    Thank you so much for your effort, Samutsamot Mom! I really appreciate it 🙂 Sana po makapag-add din kayo ng Language (English) worksheets for preschool. My son is 6 years old and is in Prep. Just a rant, hirap na hirap ako sa K-12 curriculum, I feel like kids his age will not fully understand the curriculum structured for his age, at least not yet. I find it too advanced. He cannot comprehend just yet kung sino ang school director, school registrar, school cashier, etc. It’s such a challenge in making him understand.

    In this regard, may I respectfully ask po if you can come up with Language worksheets intended for Kinder/Prep? From what I understand in the K-12, the lessons in Filipino (Makabayan/Sibika at Kultura) are parallel in English through the Language subject.

    Thank you so much in advance! May God bless the works of your hands.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Dinna! I’ll look into the Filipino and English Kinder curricula of the K-12 to see how they are parallel, but unfortunately any worksheets I make will take some time. In the meantime, you may search my blog for worksheets that may help your son in Filipino. Thank you!

  34. Charmane

    Bb. Pia,
    Nagpapasalamt po ako sa inyong magandang mga gawain para sa mga kabataan. Nais ko lamang pong humingi ng tulong tungkol sa isang gawaing online kung saan hihingi po ako ng pahintulot upang magamit ang inyong mga gawain. Narito po ang aking email address. Nawa’y matulungan ninyo po ako sa aking gawain. Salamat po.

    Bb. Charmane Espjo

  35. Marcel Lainez

    Hi Pia. Thanks so much for all your work! This is such a big help to me and my kids. We can spend more time learning and less time typing and thinking on how to test their understanding of the topic. You’re an angel!

  36. mariabumby

    Hi! I’m currently on LTS (literacy training service) and your site has been a life savior! My kid is supposedly in grade2, but is having difficulty reading, and we’re doing your preschool exercises, thankyou so much for making all of this available!

  37. Jessy

    Good day! I would like to ask for permission to use some test questions from the materials posted for my research. Hoping for your approval. Thank you.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      I’m sorry for the late reply, Jessy. We had problems with our internet connection for the past few days. You may use the questions for your research as long as you don’t use them for profit or commercial purposes.

  38. Bonette for ReadPhilippines Toronto

    Hello SamutSamot,
    This site is very helpful. I am a co-founder of ReadPhilippines Toronto which supports schools in the Philippines. We send quality used books to fill the need of school libraries especially the underprivileged ones. The current book support project we have is for a group that supports the children in Palawan. ReadPhilippines compiled the worksheets you provided in your site and bound them as a workbook. Please note that your site is mentioned in the compilation we made as the source. We look forward to seeing more worksheets in your blog. Have a wonderful weekend!

    ReadPhilippines Toronto.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Bonette! What wonderful news! Thank you very much for supporting Filipino children all the way from Canada. (Am I correct to assume that you are a Filipino living in Canada?) May I know what worksheets you found helpful? Was it a compilation for preschoolers or all grade levels? You are welcome to compile and donate as many printed copies of my worksheets, just as long as they are not sold to others. I’m currently working on a compilation of preschool worksheets myself. I’ll let you know when I’m done with it. Please send my thanks to the people in your organization. Have a good day!

      1. Bonette

        We selected worksheets that are apt for grade schoolers (1 to 6) so we picked those we think that can help them practice reading, writing and counting (pagsulat ng bilang, alpabetong filipino, etc.). We added the Filipino stories you provided at the very end of our compilation which the children can try reading after learning the alpabeto, katinig, patinig, paghahabi ng mga salita atbp.) Please do let us know if you are done with pre-schoolers compilation for printing. We are giving this to the children for free.

        Yes we are Pinoys in Canada and we support several organizations back home which offers literary programs to children. Again thanks for creating this useful and informative blog. Hope all is well!

        1. samutsamot_mom

          Thank you for this information, Bonette. I will contact you as soon as I’m done with the compilation. Best regards.

  39. 菜の花

    Just wanted to leave a comment to say “thank you”!!
    It’s been a great help for my youngest who is not good at Filipino and AP. She’ll be grade 6 next school year, but finally I decided to home school her with NOT dep-ed accredited program.

    Spending time 4 hours a day in traffic is not a life normal kids should experience, besides I think the way Filipino or dep-ed decided to teach Filipino subject is wrong. I have never taught my children Japanese grammar but they don’t make mistakes regarding more complex particles or if in Filipinos you call it panlapi or unlapi. We seem to have more of them, but I never taught them the way Filipino children are taught. And that is the reason why they are not learning, in my opinion.

    I love Filipino language, though I used to speak Cebuano, the first Filipino language I encountered, and starting next school year, I could teach my daughter the way I think the best to love Filipino language, to make her expose to more reading, writing, and express her feelings in Filipino, not like how my maids speak without proper subject or object, if you know what I mean. If I translate how Japanese converse with friends, we talk as if we are writing paragraphs.

    While your blog helped me so much to review my daughter to pass Filipino subject in school, and I really thank you for these blog worksheets, but I really wish to make her love the language without fearing of failing. Wish me luck! I’ll work hard to make her love the language. It’s such a beautiful language, and if my daughter doesn’t love it, I feel sad.

    I have an older son, he also hated AP. So when he was going to high school, he wanted to go to high school where they teach social studies in English. He was good at Filipino grammar though he didn’t speak Filipino, survived with good memories and logical thinking. So when his cousin invited to take the entrance exam to Philippine science, I went to the school and asked if they teach social studies in English, and they said yes, they teach in English. So my son was convinced to take the entrance exam. And even in Philippine Science high school (this is in Diliman) they didn’t teach social studies in Filipino, and Filipino subjects were taught without grammar, he learned to speak and write better in Filipino. So there I realized even it was a bit late for my son to have started, there was a better way. I know Philippine science is not under dep-ed, but there were teachers who showed me how to teach Filipino better. I’m sure there are many good teachers in the Philippines, but getting good direction is very important, isn’t it? I hope if this grammar thing is required by dep-ed, they consider to change it soon. Few weeks ago, my youngest daughter wrote a short story in Filipino. She didn’t write that well, but she had to think which one to use, sila or sina, kina, or whatever depend on verbs and sentence structure. After all, if you can think and form your ideas in the language, grammar will all follow, I believe.

    Merry christmas and a happy new year to you and your family!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you for sharing your story! Am I correct to assume that you are Japanese and not Filipino? I agree with you that the Filipino subject in grade school concentrates more on Filipino grammar lessons than on the appreciation of written work in Filipino. Just as your children were exposed to the Japanese language with correct grammar, children should also be exposed to the Filipino language with correct grammar if they are to learn the language easily or be able to quickly determine a grammatical error in a Filipino sentence. You are in the right direction if you’ll be teaching your children Filipino be exposing them more to reading, writing, and speaking correct Filipino, or by taking a whole language approach. The worksheets in my blog are merely aids and quick ways to check children’s understanding of a lesson. More is accomplished when more quality reading and writing is done. Good luck on your homeschooling journey! Happy holidays!

  40. Dulce💜

    Hi, Samutsamot_mom! So thankful to discover ur website. This sure helped my child’s MT mother tongue topic, “Iba’t ibang Ngalan ng Hayop”. I already added your website in my home screen for other further review. 😊 You have such a generous heart. 💓 God bless you! Merry Christmas!🎄

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Dulce! Glad to be of help. Merry Christmas to you, too!

  41. julie

    i’ve used your worksheets a number of times, and used your explanations to help my 3 girls. and i’m not sure if i’ve ever thanked you.

    Maraming maraming salamat sa yo at sa iyong mabuting puso :). wishing you a peaceful and meaningful christmas, and an exciting and prosperous new year.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Julie! Using my worksheets to help your kids is thank you enough. Have a merry Christmas!

  42. Eliza

    Hi 🙂 I would like to thank you for these worksheets. It helps me a lot. You’re such a blessing. You are giving this out without payment. Such a generous mother. 🙂 May I ask if it is possible that these worksheets have English translations, too? I’m having a hard time translating for my sibs. Thank you very much. 😀

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you, Eliza! There are several types of worksheets on this blog, some have Filipino words and many have entire sentences. In which type of worksheets do you need the English translations? The worksheets with Filipino sentences are used for practicing reading, writing, and comprehension skills in Filipino or for studying the academic subject Filipino. If these are translated into English, it defeats the purpose for practice.

  43. Corlyn G. Sacdalan

    Hi samut-samot mom, i want you to know that i am so thankful of your intelligence and generosity for i have been using your worksheets in homeschooling my niece. I am a busy working mom that i don’t have time to think of the learning exercises for my niece but ever since i found your worksheets, I’m hooked! and i feel motivated in teaching her. I use some of your preschool worksheets, too for my toddler. God bless you!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome, Corlyn! I’m glad I can help you. Yes, I fully understand the challenges of homeschooling since I homeschooled my daughter for four years. Good luck on your homeschooling journey! I’m happy to be a part of it.

  44. Benyamin Messakaraeng

    Hi, thanks so much for generous sharing of your worksheet. They helped me a lot in reviewing my grade 1 daughter. I am an Indonesian, so this really helps a lot. Thanks again, God bless!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      No problem, Benny! Is your daughter Filipino? (Just curious.)

  45. pinoyPhoenixmom

    Thank you for all these worksheets! I am Fil-Am with children 5 & 6. They’re now both in school and able to read, I’ve been teaching them tagalog and your worksheets are the best tool I’ve seen to help my children learn our language. Maraming maraming salamat! Jing

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome, Phoenixmom! It is nice to hear that you are keeping the Filipino language and culture alive through your children even if you are living abroad. Best regards!

  46. bananabellieboo

    Thank you so much for your blog and worksheets! My son is in Grade 3 and I’ve been making his reviewers in Powerpoint since he was in Grade 1. I got tired of making my own and of course the exercises in his textbooks are so boring and I wanted to give him a little variety. I can’t believe I only found your blog today.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Ms. Boo! Thank you for dropping by and using my worksheets. I had a thing for art when I was in grade school but I never pursued it. I’m a closet artist. I buy art materials and art books but I never find the time to use them. I admire the artwork you posted on your blog. Keep on sharing your art!

  47. Lilian Adre RYeo

    Ako ay lubos na nagagalak sa napakagaganda at mataas na qualidad na mga worksheets sa iyong website. Ako ay naniniwala na tayong mga nanay ay iisa lamang ang mithi para sa ating mga anak at ito ay mapabuti at mapayabong ang buhay nila at ang edukasyon ang pangunahing daan patungo rito kasabay ng isang malalim na pagmamahal sa bayan. Mabuhay ka!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you, Lilian! We should all say, “Mabuhay tayong mga nanay!”

  48. Lester

    Your wonderful blog and all this material that you have taken the time to put together and share is such a great blessing!!!!! Your great efforts and willingness to generously share the materials you took the time to create for your own child is such an amazing thing, just want to let you know that someone in the UK is also very very appreciative of what you have done! Maraming salamat po!!!!! – Lester

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thanks, Lester! I e-mailed my reply to you. Hope it helps!

  49. Mary Ann

    Hi good day samutsamot_mom thank you for your free printables worksheets its very useful. I’m grateful that I searched your Blog. Thank you very much. I will ask permission if you will allow me to print all the Filipino worksheets that I downloaded. I will used it for my class. Thank you very very much! God Bless you. I will wait for your reply.


    1. samutsamot_mom

      You are welcome to print as many worksheets as you need and want for your class or classes, as long as so do not sell any of the printouts or photocopies of the printouts. If you need to photocopy them and charge the students for the photocopies, please do not charge the students more than the photocopying fee. Thank you for using my worksheets. Good luck!

  50. Kriselle

    Hi Samutsamot mom! Maraming maraming salamat sa mga sagutang-papel para sa mga pre-schoolers 🙂 Malaking tulong po ito sa pagtuturo ng wikang Filipino sa aking anak na limang taong gulang. We’re raising him as a multilingual (he has to learn Icelandic and English at school and with friends while he learns Spanish and Filipino at home and with relatives). It’s going great. I’m also recommending your website to Filipino parents here in Iceland. The schools here are very open about encouraging foreign parents to use their mother tongue with their children so they’d be balanced bilinguals.

    Is there anything else we can do to support your blog? I wish you all the best and please keep the lessons coming!
    Maraming maraming salamat ulit! ^_^

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you, Kriselle! I’m delightfully surprised that my worksheets have reached Iceland! Thank you for your offer of support. My goal really is to assist Filipino parents and teachers. As you may already know, many parents and teachers here can not afford to have to pay online for teaching materials. Oftentimes, they need these materials ASAP. Next year, however, I have plans of improving my website to make accessing the worksheets easier. If I feel the site is donate-worthy, only then will I include a donate option. For now, you spreading the word about this blog is “thank you” enough for me. Thank you very much for your support and good luck to your son! A bilingual or multilingual child has an advantage over others.

  51. Giselle

    I am so grateful that I found your very informative site. Thank you so much for sharing your worksheets. Can you suggest book titles for pre-teens? My kids are past the Adarna series (and the like) and I would like them to read more in Tagalog. More power to you!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Giselle! Adarna House also has books for Grades 4-6 and Young Adults. You can check out their website at adarna.com.ph. You can also check out the book Supremo, also by Adarna House, under the Comics and Intermediate Readers category. Enjoy reading!

  52. Michelle DS

    Thank you for your worksheets. I’m so excited for my children to answer them.;)

  53. Claire Anne Zapico

    I love your blog you are heaven sent 🙂

  54. Meg

    Hello Samutsamot_Mom! Thank you very much for this blog especially on feelings (ano ang nararamdaman mo?) In a few weeks, I will be facilitating a leadership program for kids on how to identify and manage their feelings. Our modules will be in tagalog and your flashcards and posters are of great help. Thank you for this =)

    P.S. I would also like to ask for permission to use your flashcards to be used to teach kids.

      Hi, Meg! Yes, you may use the flashcards and any of the worksheets for teaching, but please do not sell them for profit. You may use them as resources for your work. Good luck!


    HI! thank you so much! you are such a blessing…I will be handling grade 1 this school year and I really don’t know how to do it…since I’ve been teaching in the higher level…thank you so much! God Bless!

    1. samutsamot_mom

    helo poh..its really give me a big help on the filipino subject on my 6 years old daughter..since shes just now starting to read just a little bit..do you have a worksheet for english?

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Katzkie! I’m sorry but I don’t have English worksheets on my blog. There are many preschool English worksheets you can download from the Internet though. Just type “preschool worksheets” in the Search box of the search engine of your choice. Thanks for stopping by and good luck to your daughter!

    I stumbled upon your site while helping my son with his Filipino HW on the parts of the body. Google search delivered me here, and I have to tell you: I could barely resist the urge to jump up and down, blow trumpets and throw confetti in the air… Finally! A classy, informative, educational site dedicated to those who need to learn Filipino, and with well-made worksheets: I couldn’t ask for more! It’s a dream come true! (And a relief, as I used to have to create my own to help my kids learn their Fil lessons). A huge grateful hug to you for sharing your hard work so generously! Thanks so much and keep up the awesome stuff you’re doing! 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      I’m happy to be of service. Thank you for dropping by my blog and using my worksheets. Your virtual hug is accepted and much appreciated. Good luck to your son!

    You are an angel! Thank you for sharing these worksheets! We’ll print copies for Mangyan school children we will be visiting for our outreach on 3-4 May 2014 in Bulalacao, Oriental Mindoro. We are targeting to provide school supplies to 400 kids and will give them copies of your work. They will be thrilled to receive these worksheets. To know more about our group please visit http://www.facebook.com/edicute.incorporated. Maybe we could tap you for a future project and do worksheets customized for indigenous peoples which they can use for their literacy and numeracy programs. You have great talent! May God bless your generous heart. A million thanks! 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Jordee! Thank you so much for using my worksheets to help the kids in Oriental Mindoro. I’ll check out your FB account. Yes, please do leave a comment if you need help in making customized worksheets in the future. Good luck to you and your team!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome and thanks, Aries! Good luck to your daughter!

  61. Li

    Wow! I find your worksheets superb! However, it’s almost the end of the school year. I wasn’t able to use your worksheets for my students. 🙁 until next school year. Great help btw. 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you, Li! I hope your students will also find the worksheets helpful. Please leave a comment if you see an error in any of the worksheets you used or will use for your students. My posts are few and far between now because I’m homeschooling my daughter, but I’m hoping to make more worksheets during the summer break. Thank you for your support! Drop by again soon!

  62. Jay Cathryn Tolentino

    HI thank you so much for your worksheets. Malaking tulong ito sa akin. I use your worksheets for my special kids. Mabuhay ka!

  63. krizel

    Dear samutsamot_mom,

    Thanks for having this site. Such a blessing because its free and easy to access. As a teacher, this is a helpful tool–making my work easier than before. You’re exceptional! I hope there’ll be sheets for Makabayan IV subjects. That will be very wonderful. More blessings to you and your family.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you for your compliment, Krizel! There have been a few requests for Sibika and Kultura worksheets for elementary. (Is Makabayan IV for fourth-year high school students?) Unfortunately, I can’t find the time to start making them because I’m homeschooling my fifth-grade daughter. And I’m also contemplating on posting reading comprehension worksheets on this blog. So many plans, so little time. Thank you very much for your support and encouragement though. Drop by again soon!

  64. Michelle

    love your work!! helps me a lot, specially for my kid who really is having a hard time to understand our language…
    God bless!!

  65. Nine

    You’re such a blessing to a teacher/tutor like me. . . May God bless you and your family more! 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome, Christine! Thank you for dropping by my blog.

  66. Mommy Che

    Thanks for sharing these worksheets! Very helpful because often times I don’t have the energy to make my own for my son. Great job mommy!

  67. Rachelle Reyes

    I’m a mom to a 3 year old and I am desperate for her to learn Tagalog. I want to thank you more than I can express for this blog. I grew up in the U.S. for most of my life so I understand the language and speak it but with incorrect grammar. I look forward to use these worksheets to teach my child and myself together. If you have any tips useful in helping me teach a 3 year old I would greatly appreciate it.

    You are amazing,

  68. jenerator

    Just wanted to say a big “Thank you” for sharing this fantastic resource. My parents are Filipino and I was born here in Australia. I now have 3 children under 8-years-old and I will use these worksheets to help me re-learn as well as teach my kids Tagalog.

    If you had a feature to donate money to your site I would be more than happy to, and I’m sure others would too as your time and effort is valuable.

    Looking forward to your coming posts 🙂

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you very much, Jen! Are you planning to go back to the Philippines with your kids? My sister-in-law also lives in Australia with her family. Thank you for wanting to donate. However, my blog is just a mishmash of worksheets I make during my free time. It is not as organized as I want to and (I feel) not donate-worthy yet. I am content with being able to help other parents and teachers in my small way. I try to live by the Chinese proverb “Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still.” Maybe when I’ve collected a large number of worksheets and have somehow managed to have an independent website built will I consider asking for small donations. Thank you for your support. Best regards!

  69. lot

    I hope you could make worksheets from other subjects. Your style is the best. Your are very helpful to us mommies whose helping their children on their lesson. Thank you! Thank you!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Lot! Thank you for your compliment! I’ve been posting fewer worksheets because I am homeschooling my daughter, but I’ll try to get a variety of worksheets posted. I don’t make English or Math worksheets because there’s quite a lot of these that can be downloaded from the Internet. What subjects do you have in mind?

  70. marilou

    thank you so much….pls dont stop posting examples and worksheets. hope you can post more lessons for grade 6 and 5. im also a fulltime mom, who really wants to help my kids in thier lessons. more power

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome, Marilou! My daughter’s in fifth grade, too. I’ll try to post more worksheets for the higher grade levels. Thanks for stopping by!

  71. career_mom

    Thank you for sharing the worksheets to us. I am a trying to balance between work and being a single mom to a grade 2 girl…. and this site (just discovered it now) is a real BIG help! I usually do the worksheets myself but this one cuts my work, thanks to you. Inspires me to do better worksheets for her other subjects and to share as well.


    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hello, career_mom! Yehey, more family time then! Thank you for your comment. Please do share your creations with others. Best regards.

  72. Moundie (NICKNAME)

    Hello po,student po ako at thank you po for ll of the worksheets I learn so much even at home =D

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Moundie! Maraming salamat sa pagbisita mo sa blog ko! Good luck to you!

  73. Anne

    Hi! My Kids are in Grade 8, Grade 5 and Grade 1.

  74. Anne

    HI! Thank you for all the worksheets that you are sharing with us specially the ones in Filipino. It is so hard to find these worksheets that are so easy for kids to understand and so well made. I really appreciate the effort you are putting into them. I know it takes time to do them and your drawings are also so great (I no good in drawing). I used to make worksheets for my kids when they were younger and I wasn’t so busy with work. I also shared my worksheets with my friends. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to save them as my old computer crashed. Finding your website is a blessing. Your worksheets will definitely make it easier for me to review them specially in Filipino.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hello, Anne! Thank you very much for dropping by and using my worksheets. I appreciate your comments. The ones with illustrations do take time but drawing is my Zen activity. Putting them to good use is a plus for me. I’m sorry to hear about your computer crashing. It also happened to me a couple of times. I feel privileged to be able to help other parents like you. Best regards to your family! (What grades are your kids in?)

  75. CarlZ

    So happy I found your site. God knows how much I need this to teach Filipino to my 4yo son. He can’t speak a word of it and I know its high time I started. Thanks. Simply a Godsend.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, CarlZ! You’re welcome. My daughter understood but did not speak Filipino until she was four, when she realized she needed to in order to communicate with her classmates. Your son will eventually get used to it with sufficient exposure at home and at school. Good luck!

  76. Cez

    Thank you so much for sharing your worksheets with other parents!

  77. Marianne Ponce

    Hi Samutsamot_mom! I want to thank you for sharing your worksheets with other moms and teachers. It is indeed a great help for us. I too is a teacher and was able too work a filipino teacher in a philippine international school here in riyadh. I do worksheets too for my pupils because the subject is really hard for them especially that they are mostly children of expats working here in riyadh. Thank you so much for your generosity. Will really share it with other moms and teachers here. I’ll ask them to visit your blog. God bless!!!!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you very much for using my worksheets and spreading the word about my blog, Marianne! I am very happy to know that I am able to help Filipino teachers and parents, wherever they are in the world, through my blog. Teachers like you keep me inspired. Good luck to you and your students!

  78. Ann

    Thank you for this free site. This is very helpful for me being a mom of 2 boys. God bless

  79. Randz

    You site is very nice ma’am! Your posts are very helpful to us teachers… Keep it up!

  80. Emily

    Dear Samutsamot mom, you are incredible, putting all these Filipino worksheets together. Do you have a compiled version, or sort of an ebook? If none, do you mind if I do that for you? And I hope you publish it as an ebook (pdf or epub version).

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thank you, Emily! My husband and I already have plans to compile my worksheets into a hard copy book. Maybe ring-bound so that teachers and parents can easily photocopy them for their students/children. Thank you for offering though. For now, I intend to make more worksheets to add to that compilation. I feel privileged to be able to help other parents and teachers. Thank you very much for your support and encouragement. And yes, I am incredible, as is every other hardworking mother or teacher out there 🙂 Best regards!

  81. Emily Arjonillo

    Thanks for creating all these worksheets!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re welcome, Emily! Thank you too for dropping by my blog. Best regards.

    Hi Pia,

    I just got the topic outline from my son’s school for their second assessment. Sharing it here:

    Pagkillala sa panghalip panao (Ako, Kami, Ikaw, Siya at Sila); pagkilala sa mga panghalip pamatlig (Ito, Iyan, Iyon); pagsagot sa mga tanong na sino, ano, saan, kailan at bakit; pagsunod-sunod ng mga pangyayari sa kwento; pagkilala sa mga salitang pamilang; pagkilala sa salitang kilos; pagkilala sa tatlong aspekto ng salitang kilos (ginawa na, ginagawa pa, gagawin pa lang); pagkilala sa pangungusap at di-pangungusap; pagkilala sa mga uri ng pangungusap (pasalaysay, patanong, pautos, padamdam); pagsulat ng pangungusap

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Thanks, Helen! Please check your Yahoo e-mail inbox. I sent you my reply.

  83. Shelah

    Thank you so much for putting up all these wonderful teaching material! I’ve just started teaching Filipino here in Sweden and was on my wits* end trying to find handouts for my students until I found your wonderful, wonderful blog. Again, thank you so much!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Wow, Sweden! Hello, Shelah! How old are your students? Are they Swedish adults learning Filipino or Filipino kids? I encourage you to leave a comment to request for worksheets you might need in the future. It is better to give me a more detailed description of what you need. This will also help other parents and teachers. Good luck to you and your students!

      1. Shelah

        Hi samutsamot_mom!

        I am working with kids from preschool to grade 6. They are children of Filipino expats who live here in Stockholm.

        It would be really helpful if there are worksheets that target younger students who are learning to use everyday words that focus on items of clothing, the weather (maaraw, maulan, mainit, malamig), members of the family, and things found around the house. It would be super if the worksheets came with illustrations as children make word associations through pictures.

        Again, thank you so much for your wonderful worksheets! Your blog is such a useful resource.

        Have a good day!

        1. samutsamot_mom

          Hi, Shelah! I have been contemplating on worksheets like these for some time now. Something like a first words series. It would take some time for me to make the drawings but I will work on them. If you have time, e-mail me a list of words that are the most important so I’ll prioritize them, and so that I can make them specifically for your students’ needs. You can e-mail me at pianoche@hotmail.com. Best regards.

    2. LizaPed

      Hi Shelah,
      It is nice to know that there is another Filipina in Sweden who is using this website…. (and we posted comments on the same day??? wow!)
      Where in Sweden do you live? I live in Kristianstad in Skåne. Are you using the worksheets for modersmålsundervisning in your municipality? Or?
      Have a nice day!

      1. Shelah

        Hi Liza,

        What a coincidence!

        I live in Stockholm and work for a kommun within Stockholms län. Yes, I am using the worksheets for modersmålsundervisning and couple them with some activities and Tagalog songs.

        Do you also work as a modersmålslärare?

        Ha det så bra!

  84. LizaPed

    Hello Samutsamot_mom,
    I am so happy I found your website! Kudos! Your dedication is outstanding. I have downloaded your alphabet worksheets for our Tagalog/Filipino language teaching and learning here in Kristianstad, Sweden. I will be coming back for more, because this will save us a lot of time on planning. I really appreciate it and thank you very much.
    Best regards,

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hello, Liza! Thanks for dropping by! Please leave a comment to request for worksheets that you may need in the future. Please make your topic/worksheet description more specific. Good luck to you and your students!

  85. karen

    Hi! The school has not released the list of topics for the second quarter. I’ll post it here once i have it with me. Regards!

  86. eliza

    Thanks for those recommendations. I agree, Adarna has some great selections. And some books even have a “recommended for age…” indicator at the back of the book.

    Thanks again!

  87. eliza

    Thank you so much for this! Do you have recommendations for Filipino story books for Grade 1?

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Eliza! I would recommend Araw sa Palengke (published by Adarna House, http://adarna.com.ph/araw-sa-palengke.html). Adarna House also has other books for Grade 1 which you can check out here, http://adarna.com.ph/storybook/grade-1.html?p=1. I also recommend “Gusto Ko Ng Pansit Ngayon” by Rene O. Villanueva. I bought this book from National Book Store years ago, but I don’t know if they still have it in stock. Adarna and Lampara books are available at National Book Store.

  88. karen

    It is so generous of you to share your worksheets. They are of BIG help everytime I teach my kiddos about this subject (follow up on what they have learned from school). Sad fact is, sometimes, I need to translate the topic pa in filipino to english so that they will understand. Thank you very much and continue to be inspired in making wonderful worksheets. God Bless!!!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Karen! You’re not alone. Many parents, including me, find themselves translating Filipino topics to English when reviewing their kids. When having to write in Filipino, my daughter forms English sentences first, then translates them to Filipino. Sometimes I study the same topic in English before I make the Filipino worksheet. I try the worksheets on her before I post them. Tell me what grades your kids are in so I can post more worksheets appropriate for them. Best regards.

      1. karen

        My kiddos are in grade 1 and in grade 2. Thank goodness that the topics in English and in Filipino are the same which makes it easier for me. I actually used some of your worksheets in reviewing them for their 1st quarterly exam last August 12-15. And am really planning to use your worksheets as part of their review even without exams because it is very skillfully made, easy for the kids to understand and easy for me to use. =)

        1. samutsamot_mom

          You’re very welcome, Karen! I hope your kids did well in their exams. My daughter is in fifth grade, so I’m not quite sure what topics the primary grades are tackling in their Filipino subject now. I’d appreciate a heads-up, so if you can please leave a comment for any worksheet suggestions. Even if they are for future reviews. Regards.

  89. helenahren

    Hi, Pia!

    Parequest uli. Pagkilala sa mga salitang may kambal-katinig at diptonggo.

    Thank you in advance.

      1. helenahren

        Thank you. Your worksheets are really well-made. My son always gets perfect scores now since we started using your creations, such a tremendous improvement for him. Best of all, he is no longer afraid of the subject.

        1. samutsamot_mom

          That’s very good news! Please tell him that his performance is the best compliment he can give for my efforts. I’m jumping for joy for his success (and yours, too)! I’m very happy that he is no longer afraid of Filipino. That’s already half the battle. Your worksheets are ready. I had fun making them. Best regards and congratulations to your son!

  90. esi

    thank you very much……your worksheets is very helpful….thanks! godbless

  91. crisanto

    thank you! and your worksheets is very helpful to teach my grade 1 son he is learning now..

  92. helenahren

    I hope you could feature topics on: pagtukoy sa mga bagay na magkakapangkat, magkakatulad at magkakaiba ayon sa hugis, kulay, anyo at laki; pagpapantig ng mga salita, pagkilala sa mga salitang may kambal-pantig; ibat-ibang anyo ng pantig PK,KP,KPK,KKP,PKK,KPKK,KKPK,KKPKK.

    Thank you.

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Helen! Thank you for your suggestions. I think I can make worksheets on the “iba’t-ibang anyo ng pantig.” Do you have a specific grade level in mind? The other topics you suggested will require drawings, so they may take time.

      1. helenahren

        Yay! Thank you in advance. Grade 1 level, I’m already using your worksheets, we’re really grateful for your generosity.

  93. helenahren

    Thank you for sharing the worksheets you made, they’re really helpful. I hope you continue sharing your creations with us. You have made my (a working-not-computer-savvy-mom) life a little easier. I hope you could feature more topics. Thank you again!

    1. samutsamot_mom

      You’re very welcome! You and my daughter have the same name 🙂 I’m also not that techno-savvy, learning only what I need to know to get by. Please leave a comment any time to suggest a topic for worksheets so I could be of more help. Thanks!

  94. Diwata (real name)

    Appreciate your efforts po. I am a tutor and help several kids in this Southern Luzon Suburb also. Your worksheets are tremendous help to these kids. Kudos to you. MORE POWER. Just to let you know that your work has not been in vain. KUDOS TO YOU. <3

    1. samutsamot_mom

      Hi, Diwata! Thank you very much for using my worksheets to help the kids you tutor. I’m also more than happy to help teachers, tutors, and parents. I’ll try to make more worksheets over the summer. Please leave future comments that will help me provide people like you with what you need. Thanks!
