Listahan ng mga Karaniwang Salita

Below is a PDF file that lists 150 common Filipino words that would be most frequently encountered by learners reading Filipino reading materials. The words are presented in 15 lists (10 words per list) and ranked by frequency. It was loosely based on the Dolch Sight Words and Fry Sight Words for English words. I have removed the common nouns and color words that were included in those lists to be able to add the more frequently used Filipino words. Though I tried to keep related Filipino words together, I had to consider the frequency of certain words. So words that you think are related (Filipino pronouns, for example) are not all listed in the same list. Each page has 3 lists and each list has 10 words. You can cut the page along the dashed lines to have 3 lists. You also need to cut off both left and…

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.

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.…
