“Ang Aking Pamilya” Booklet

Filipino Family Tree Activity Sheet

Si Pyramus at si Thisbe

In our English class during our freshman year in high school, we had the opportunity to study Edith Hamilton’s book Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes. I was inspired to translate one of the eight brief tales of lovers in that book. I chose the story of Pyramus and Thisbe because it reminded me of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (although Pyramus and Thisbe predated Romeo and Juliet); the story of forbidden love between lovers from feuding families.

I was thinking that it would be a good reading exercise for high school students who are studying the ancient world (e.g., Babylon) in their Araling Panlipunan subject (I think this topic is studied by Grade 8 students). Although, the story is a reading exercise in Filipino.

In the PDF file below, I’ve translated Edith Hamilton’s English version of Pyramus and Thisbe by Ovid and I’ve also included some dialogue from Thomas Bulfinch’s version of the same story from his book The Age of Fable.

There is also a list of vocabulary words in Filipino with English definitions. I’ve also included a set of questions that the students can answer.

The story may also be an example of a legend (alamat) since it tells of the origin of why the fruit of the mulberry tree is red instead of white. The immature fruits of the mulberry tree are actually colored white, green, or pale yellow. In most species, the fruits turn pink and then red while ripening, and then dark purple or black. They have a sweet flavor when fully ripe.

Magbasa Tayo! (Part 1)

Several people have requested for reading exercises in Filipino, especially for preschoolers. Below are two short reading exercises for children who are practicing to read in Filipino. The first one is entitled “Ang Bahay Namin.”

The second page has dots under each syllable to help the child read the word. (I just wanted to try this out. Please leave a comment if the dots help in reading.) There is also a cut-and-paste activity where the child can cut and paste together the parts of a house.

The house illustrations are by Samut-samot Mom. The kids clipart are by Little Red’s Schoolhouse.

Mga Hanapbuhay (Part 1)

hanapbuhay_3

Some time ago, a reader asked me if I had materials on community helpers in Filipino. I replied that I did not have any worksheets on that topic because it would take some time to make the necessary illustrations. I decided to purchase clip art images online, but I realized that it was necessary to illustrate my own so as to show what Filipinos in different professions look like.

Below is the link to an 8-page PDF file that can be printed to make a booklet that is half the size of a short bond paper. It has images of 13 different Filipino professions and a short description for each. The text may be used to practice reading in Filipino and the student can color the illustrations.

On the last page of the booklet, the student is asked to draw himself or herself with the job he or she wishes to have in the future. The student is also asked to write why he or she chose this profession.

To create the booklet, follow the instructions below. The page numbers refer to the page numbers of the PDF file, not the numbers on the booklet pages.

  1. Print pages 1 and 2 back-to-back.
  2. Print pages 3 and 4 back-to-back.
  3. Print pages 5 and 6 back-to-back.
  4. Print pages 7 and 8 back-to-back.
  5. Fold the pages in half (crosswise).
  6. Arrange the pages in order. Use the page numbers on the upper corners of the booklet pages as guides.
  7. Staple the pages together.

The doctor, nurse, and firefighter clip art images are from Little Red’s Clip Art. Check out their online stores below.

Preschool Filipino Worksheets Bundle Vol. 1

Cover

I’ve been posting free worksheets since 2012 on this blog. Because this is a personal blog, it is difficult to sift through the posts to find what you need.

To make it easier for people who are searching for worksheets for preschoolers, I’ve made a set of Filipino worksheets that focuses on the following topics:

  • learning the 28 letters of the Filipino alphabet and their correct order;
  • learning words that begin with (or have) the letters of the Filipino alphabet;
  • learning how to write the uppercase and lowercase letters of the Filipino alphabet;
  • learning how to distinguish the Filipino vowels (patinig) from the consonants (katinig);
  • practicing reading two-letter syllables (pantig);
  • practicing reading simple two-syllable Filipino words;
  • identifying the correct word for an object or person;
  • writing the missing syllable to complete simple Filipino words; and
  • practicing reading simple sentences in Filipino.

In this bundle, I used a uniform format for the worksheets to make the bundle look like a workbook. There are also several worksheets in the bundle that are not available for free on this blog. Furthermore, having the PDF bundle makes the search for these types of worksheets easier. You can also print the worksheets anytime you need them at home or in school.

Ang Parabula ng mga Posporo

Para sa imo ini, ‘Nay!  (“This is for you, Mom!” in Bikol)

This short story was written by my late mother, Jean Llorin, a long time ago in English.  A few years back, she asked me to draw pictures to go with her story.  I’ve translated the story in Filipino and added a few more important details that I felt the story needed. A thumbnail of the first page is shown below.

Click on the link below, not the thumbnail, to open the 4-page pdf file. All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom.

Feel free to share this story with your children, students, and friends, but do not do so for profit or my mother’s ghost will haunt you!

Please note that I am not a writer (I’m actually an engineering graduate), so feel free to leave comments on how I can improve the story. Thanks!
