How do you feel today? (Filipino version)

This post is dedicated to Liza and Shelah, two teachers in Sweden.  Hej! The 2-page pdf file below provides two charts that allow the student to choose how she or he feels today. All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom. You may distribute these charts to your students and children, but please do not do so for profit. The first page shows a chart asking "Ano ang nararamdaman mo ngayon?" A thumbnail is shown below. The second page  shows a chart asking "How do you feel today?" A thumbnail is shown below.

I did not include number words that may be used as adjectives, such as isa, dalawa, tatlo, etc. I also did not include the numerous adjectives that are made by adding an affix (panlapi) to a Filipino root word, although many words in this list have affixes. Some adjectives have two definitions. The two definitions are separated by a semicolon (;). The adjectives in this list are alphabetically arranged according to the Filipino alphabet. If you have an English adjective and would like to see its Filipino translation, you may search the file using Adobe Reader’s Find…
