Mga Nakikita sa Paaralan

Below is the link to a 7-page PDF file that teaches the Filipino names for people and objects that can be seen in a school classroom. There are three lesson sheets and four pages that can be made into a mini-booklet. For the mini-booklet, the pages can be cut and stapled together. Two words not commonly used but included here is the Filipino word for notebook which is kuwaderno (although my beloved high school teacher in Filipino would always say "Ilabas ang kuwaderno!"), and the word for watercolor which is akwarela. Some of the clip art images were obtained from www.openclipart.org. The other images were illustrated and are owned by samutsamot_mom.

Pagbasa ng Oras

When my daughter was very young, I would often use the analog clock with her by saying things like "When both the short hand and long hand point to 12, it would be twelve o'clock. Time to eat lunch." She asked me how an analog clock was read to tell time. I explained to her that the numbers represented a multiple of five. When the long hand was pointing to 1 that meant that five minutes had passed. When the long hand was pointing to 2, ten minutes had passed, and so on. She replied that it was too complicated and expressed amazement that I had learned how to read time. I told her that she would also learn how to read the time after some practice. The three pdf files below are about telling time in Filipino. All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom. You may print and distribute them to…
