Mga Damdamin (2018)

If you're teaching students how to tell what a person is feeling, this post might help you. Using the Male Cartoon Avatar Creator by Shark&Croc co., I created a set of male faces showing 16 different emotions (listed below). Labels for each emotion are provided in Filipino and in English. Students may be asked to place the correct label under the face showing that emotion.  calm (kalmado) contented/satisfied (kontento) happy (saya/masaya) joyful (tuwa/natutuwa) sad (lungkot/malungkot) scared (takot/natatakot) angry (galit) surprised (gulat) excited (sabik) doubt/doubtful (duda/nagdududa) tired (pagod) sleepy (antok/inaantok) nervous (kaba/kinakabahan) hurt (sakit/nasasaktan) annoyed (inis/naiinis) shy (hiya/nahihiya) If you have downloaded the file or files, it is assumed that you have agreed to the Terms of Use stated in the PDF file. These files are for personal, home, and multi-classroom use. You may not use them for profit. You may not upload them in any other website like Scribd or…

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 Bahagi ng Katawan (NEW)

I recently purchased a clip art set from one of my favorite illustrators and I couldn't wait to create teaching sheets using the cute clip art images. The illustrations are by Kari Bolt. Check out her store on Teachers Pay Teachers. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kari-Bolt-Clip-Art The PDF file below has teaching sheets for the parts of the body. The front and back parts of the body are labeled. The labels are in Filipino. There is a girl version and a boy version of the lesson sheets. The parts of the face, arms, hands, and legs are also included. I also made a version where I placed the English translations under the Filipino labels. Click on the links below, not the screenshots of the file, to open each PDF file in another tab. These PDF files available for free, so the least you can do in return is to follow these terms: The PDF…

Mga Propesyon at Tungkulin sa Filipino

I started making a list of Filipino nouns with the common gender and I ended up making a long list of occupations and common roles and responsibilities. The Filipino nouns in this list have the common gender. They may be used to refer to either a male/man or female/woman. Below is the link to a six-page PDF file entitled "Mga Propesyon at Tungkulin." It has a list of professions categorized according to following fields: Community helpers (Examples: basurero, dentista, guwardiya, karpintero) Common roles and responsibilities (Examples: bisita, kaibigan, kamag-aral, pasahero) Family and relatives (Examples: anak, asawa, kapatid, manugang) Business (Examples: akawntant, bangkero, ingat-yaman, negosyante) Politics and law (Examples: abogado, alkalde, kongresista, senador) Military and security (Examples: heneral, hepe, koronel, sarhento) Education (Examples: dekano, guro, prinsipal, propesor, tutor) Health care (Examples: beterinaryo, manggagamot, maninistis, obstetra) Science (Examples: antropologo, heograpo, kimiko, pisiko) Journalism and publishing (Examples: kolumnista, makata, mananaliksik, patnugot) Religion (Examples:…

Kasarian ng mga Pangngalan

A couple of years ago I posted a list of common nouns and categorized them according to gender. Upon reviewing that list, I realized that some entries were incorrect for reasons which I will explain in this post. I have revised that list, added more entries, and categorized quite a lot of them. The link to the revised list (a PDF file) is provided below. A Filipino noun (pangngalan) may be categorized according the natural gender (male or female/lalaki o babae), the uncertainty of gender (male or female), or the lack of gender (nouns for nonliving things or concepts) of the person, animal, object, or idea the noun is pertaining to. A Filipino noun may be classified as having one of the four genders: masculine gender (panlalaki), feminine gender (pambabae), common gender (pambalaki o di-tiyak), or neuter gender (walang kasarian). Nouns with masculine gender are used for male persons and animals…
