Mga Hanapbuhay (New version)

Last year I made a booklet showing different occupations in Filipino. Each occupation had a short description. I have reworked that booklet and created three PDF files with one occupation per page. I also changed some text and added clip art of tools or things used by each person in his or her job. The files provide reading practice for young students. These may also be used to introduce the lesson on community helpers (mga katulong sa pamayanan) or occupations. The tools shown may also act as springboards for discussions about each occupation. The files include the following occupations: magsasaka (farmer) mangingisda (fisherman) guro (teacher) kawani (employee; assistant) pulis (police officer) bombero (firefighter) doktor (doctor) nars (nurse) tsuper (driver) karpintero (carpenter) manggagawa sa pabrika (factory worker) tindera (seller) beterinaryo (veterinarian) dentista (dentist) basurero (garbage collector) dyanitor (janitor) kartero (mail carrier/postal carrier) trabahador (worker/laborer) modista (seamstress/dressmaker) tagapagluto (cook) manunulat (writer) marinero…

Mga Hanapbuhay (Part 1)

Some time ago, a reader asked me if I had materials on community helpers in Filipino. I replied that I did not have any worksheets on that topic because it would take some time to make the necessary illustrations. I decided to purchase clip art images online, but I realized that it was necessary to illustrate my own so as to show what Filipinos in different professions look like. Below is the link to an 8-page PDF file that can be printed to make a booklet that is half the size of a short bond paper. It has images of 13 different Filipino professions and a short description for each. The text may be used to practice reading in Filipino and the student can color the illustrations. On the last page of the booklet, the student is asked to draw himself or herself with the job he or she wishes…
