Si Diwayen

Mga Damdamin Flashcards

Last year I posted a Filipino version of the Feelings Chart (see it here).  Except for the illustration for tired (pagod), I used the same illustrations to make flashcards for teachers and parents. These may be cut and pasted on pieces of cardboard or cartolina, and shown to a small group of preschoolers or first graders. The flashcards may also be used to make a booklet.
