Ang Pagbabahin ni Pabling (Maikling Kuwento)

I'm happy to share with you a short story (in Filipino) that I've written about a young monkey trying to find the solution to his persistent sneezing. I've also made some questions about the story that the student can answer to test his or her comprehension. The PDF file has three pages for the story and two pages for the questions. I thought this would be a nice read-aloud story for young students or an introduction to reading Filipino words that end in -ing or -in. I drew the illustrations of the monkey in the PDF file. The PDF file also features clip art by Kari Bolt and Little Red's Clipart. A font by Kimberly Geswein was also used.

Ang Bahay na Gawa ni Lucas

The tale "This is the House That Jack Built" is a nursery rhyme that is described to be a cumulative tale or a chain tale in which the lines are repeated as the tale progresses. I made a similar tale in Filipino (link to the PDF file below), adapted from "This is the House That Jack Built." I also made three worksheets about the Filipino tale I wrote. If you have any suggestions on how to make the tale better, please leave a comment below. I drew some of the illustrations in the PDF file. Others were downloaded from openclipart.org. The PDF file also features clip art by Kari Bolt.

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…
