Parable of the Matchsticks

One of the readers of this blog asked for an English version of the story “Ang Parabula ng mga Posporo” which I posted here.

The original story was actually written by my late mother in English. I translated the story in Filipino and changed it a bit. As requested, I made an English version of the adapted story (The Parable of the Matchsticks). All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom.

Pagkilala sa mga Hugis Worksheets (Part 2)

I have revised the worksheets I made in 2014 on shapes. The 7-page pdf file below introduces the student to the Filipino words for circle (bilog), triangle (tatsulok), square (parisukat), rectangle (parihaba), and oval (obalo).

Each worksheet has (1) a short description of the shape (which the teacher or parent can read), (2) the Filipino word for the shape that can be traced, (3) different-sized shapes that can be traced, and (4) a set of shapes from which the student can identify and color the particular shape.

Note that I used the word obalo for oval and not habilog or biluhaba. According to the UP Diksiyonaryong Filipino (2010 Edition), the words habilog and biluhaba are adjectives (pang-uri). They are used to describe objects that are oval-shaped. The words obalo and obalado may be used as a noun to refer to the shape or as an adjective to describe an object that is oval-shaped.

Strictly speaking, a square is a rectangle but since the worksheets are meant to be used for and by preschoolers and first graders, this definition will not be used at this time.
