Magbasa Tayo!: Ang Liham ni Joshua

Welcome, new subscribers! Here's a new reading comprehension exercise in Filipino. Students can read a letter written by a child to his grandparents. In the letter, Joshua thanks his grandparents for their Christmas present and gives them the good news that he has learned how to ride a bike. There are two sets of reading comprehension questions for the students to answer. In the first set, students are asked to answer the questions in complete sentences. There are multiple-type questions in the second set. You may type "magbasa tayo" in the Search box to see my other posts that have reading exercises. Please leave a comment below if you notice an error in the file. You may also leave suggestions on how the letter can be improved or add more comprehension questions. Click the title link below or the Download button, not the image, to open the PDF file. If…

Matching Cards: Mga Bagay na Magkapares

I've made a set of matching cards with objects that usually go together. There are eight cards or four matching pairs in each page. Cut the cards using the thin lines as guides and mix them up. Ask the child to read each card (the labels are in Filipino) and match them to the card with the object that usually goes with it. You can also ask the child to color the images before doing the matching activity. The matching pairs included in this set are as follows: mesa at upuan (table and chair)plato at kutsara at tinidor (plate and spoon and fork)kama at unan (bed and pillow)sipilyo at toothpaste (toothbrush and toothpaste)kalan at kawali (stove and pan)pandilig at halaman (watering can and plant)blusa at palda (blouse and skirt)sapatos at medyas (shoes and socks)plantsa at plantsahan (iron and ironing board)martilyo at pako (hammer and nail)karayom at sinulid (needle and thread)kandado…
