Magbasa Tayo!: Ang Liham ni Joshua

Welcome, new subscribers! Here's a new reading comprehension exercise in Filipino. Students can read a letter written by a child to his grandparents. In the letter, Joshua thanks his grandparents for their Christmas present and gives them the good news that he has learned how to ride a bike. There are two sets of reading comprehension questions for the students to answer. In the first set, students are asked to answer the questions in complete sentences. There are multiple-type questions in the second set. You may type "magbasa tayo" in the Search box to see my other posts that have reading exercises.

Tula: Maglaro Tayo!

Here's a Filipino poem I wrote about games Filipino children play. And I don't mean digital games. Feel free to use it in any way you want for your students. You can ask them to memorize the poem, present a choral poetry performance, or maybe use it in a skit. Or you can simply post it on your bulletin board for your students to read. The image below is the first part of the poem. The poem has two pages. I also provided another page where you can find the entire poem. The first page of the PDF file contains its Terms of Use.
