One of the readers of my blog requested for more worksheets for students in Grades 7 and 8. The topic I chose for this blog post is on the different types of Filipino adjectives (mga uri ng pang-uri). This topic also appears in some Grade 6 Filipino textbooks.
Adjectives or adjective phrases are used to describe nouns (pangngalan) or pronouns (panghalip) in a sentence. An adverb (pang-abay) describes or modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. If the word describes a verb, then it is not an adjective; it is an adverb. To make sure that a word is used as an adjective or adverb, it is useful to first identify the word in the sentence that it is describing.
The first PDF file below discusses the three main types of Filipino adjectives which are pang-uring panlarawan (descriptive adjective), pang-uring pantangi (proper adjective), and pang-uring pamilang (numeral adjective). There are also six types of pang-uring pamilang described here. A gave a few examples for each type.
I’d like to stress that I am not Filipino teacher and the discussion I made is based on my own research and interpretation. If you find any errors in my discussion, please feel free to leave a comment so I can correct them.

The second PDF file below is a worksheet on the same topic. The student is asked to classify the adjective (in bold) in each sentence as panlarawan, pantangi, or pamilang. For the numeral adjectives, the students may be asked to classify each as one of the six types of pang-uring pamilang.
