New Resources Page and Recommended Sites

Hello to all! I’ve recently added a new page under the Resources menu item. The new page called “Reading Passages” features the PDF files with reading passages and poems that I’ve posted on this blog. Just click the down arrow next to Resources on the top menu and select Reading Passages. Since many families might be looking for online resources while under quarantine, I thought I would recommend a few. 1. Teacher Abi’s Worksheets If you want more resources in Filipino, Teacher Abi has posted a lot of free resources on her blog. She has modules with reading passages and comprehension questions, as well as other activities. This is a great source of teaching materials for parents and teachers. 2. Super Teacher Worksheets This was my go-to site for English worksheets when I was homeschooling my daughter many years ago, when they used to be free. Now they offer worksheets…

Flip Cards: Mga Bahagi ng Mukha at Katawan

There's been an increase in interest on online learning using platforms such as Boom Learning, which requires you to be online in order to access the activities. To address the need to be online, I've created a downloadable interactive PowerPoint show that students can use even without an internet connection. (Of course, you need to download it on your device first.) I made a PowerPoint show with a set of flip cards on the parts of the face and body in Filipino. The learner is asked to say the name of the face or body part before clicking the flip card. Once clicked, the card will flip to reveal the name for the body part. The image below shows what a slide will look like before and after clicking a flip card. This is only a sample, so I only made two slides with a total of 12 flip cards.…

New TeachersPayTeachers Store

Hello, everyone! I’ve been spending some of my quarantine time making products for my new store at, an online marketplace for teachers to sell their digital products. The name of my store is OLIOTOPIA. The word olio means “a miscellaneous collection of things,” just like this blog’s name samut-samot. I threw in my first name at the end. I decided to sell products on TeachersPayTeachers (TpT) because when buyers purchase a product, they can instantly download it. (And of course, this mom has to make a living.) The products in Oliotopia are either new worksheets or much improved versions of what I have been posting in this blog. My TpT store is focused on selling products written in the Filipino language, but I’ll eventually translate some of them and make English versions to sell, too. For now, I only have four products in my store, each less than 10…
