You can get to the page by clicking 'Resources' on the site's main menu and selecting 'Mga Kuwento.' This page will be updated every time I publish a post with a story. Happy reading!

Tula: Maglaro Tayo!

Here's a Filipino poem I wrote about games Filipino children play. And I don't mean digital games. Feel free to use it in any way you want for your students. You can ask them to memorize the poem, present a choral poetry performance, or maybe use it in a skit. Or you can simply post it on your bulletin board for your students to read. The image below is the first part of the poem. The poem has two pages. I also provided another page where you can find the entire poem. The first page of the PDF file contains its Terms of Use. Downloading the PDF file means you agree to abide by these terms. The clip art images and fonts used in this product are owned by the artists mentioned in the Credits Page of the PDF file. The clip art images used in this product are by…
