Pabula: Ang Sikmura at mga Bahagi ng Katawan

“The Belly and the Members” is one of the many fables of Aesop (pronounced as “ee-sawp”). In this fable, some parts of the body go on strike after realizing that the belly was the only one getting the food. I wrote a Filipino fable based on Aesop’s tale, with each body part giving an argument for their being the most important of all.

This fable may be used as an introduction to a lesson on the parts of the body. It may be read aloud to younger students. It may also be used as reading practice for Grade 4 students (or older) who can read Filipino fairly well.

Ang Aking Limang Pandama

Tula: Ang mga Bulag at ang Elepante

The poem “The Blind Men and the Elephant” was written by 19th century American poet John Godfrey Saxe. The poem is based on a parable from India about six blind men who wanted to know what an elephant was like. As each blind man was holding a different part of the elephant, they all had different opinions. The parable is used to teach that one’s experience is subjective and limited, and that we sometimes fail to account for the complete truth. It encourages better communication and respect for a variety of perspectives.

I thought it would be nice to translate this poem in Filipino. The poem “Ang mga Bulag at ang Elepante” is my adaptation of the poem in Filipino. (Please note that I excluded the last paragraph, the MORAL, in my adaptation). It may also be used as reading practice for young readers, as a poem to memorize for elementary students, or just something to read to your child at bedtime.

The image used in the PDF file was obtained from Wikimedia Commons.

I also found the Saxe poem sung by Natalie Merchant on YouTube.

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:

  1. magsasaka (farmer)
  2. mangingisda (fisherman)
  3. guro (teacher)
  4. kawani (employee; assistant)
  5. pulis (police officer)
  6. bombero (firefighter)
  7. doktor (doctor)
  8. nars (nurse)
  9. tsuper (driver)
  10. karpintero (carpenter)
  11. manggagawa sa pabrika (factory worker)
  12. tindera (seller)
  13. beterinaryo (veterinarian)
  14. dentista (dentist)
  15. basurero (garbage collector)
  16. dyanitor (janitor)
  17. kartero (mail carrier/postal carrier)
  18. trabahador (worker/laborer)
  19. modista (seamstress/dressmaker)
  20. tagapagluto (cook)
  21. manunulat (writer)
  22. marinero (mariner/sailor)

Below is a screenshot of the first two occupations.
