Teaching Family Members in Tagalog

pamilya dolls

Family is very important to the Filipino culture. Learning the names of the family members is something we innately taught the kids as we addressed them as “Ate” or “Kuya,” “Lola,” “Tita,” or “Tito.” Here is a printable with Tagalog vocabulary words for immediate family members along with a fun puppet activity to practice.

“Sino ‘Yan?” Game

Print or develop pictures of family members and glue them onto construction paper, index cards, or cardstock. On the back, glue the printed vocabulary card from the printable. Play a game to ask, “sino ‘yan?” (who’s that) or “sino ito?” (who’s this?) and have the child identify the correct name using Tagalog.

Tagalog Lesson Activities About the Calendar (Kalindaryo)

Teaching kids about the concept of time is empowering, as they get a stronger sense of the past, present, future, and duration of events. Learning how to read and use the calendar can be fun.

Here are a couple of tips we use:

  • We keep a calendar at the kids’ eye level, so they can read the months, days, and dates themselves. They can also interact with it by changing the date and adding notes for special events and appointments.
  • We sing songs to engage the children and help the concepts become more memorable.

Playdough Playmats

Playing with playdough is an engaging sensory activity for kids. There are so many ways to use playdough to learn and use your creativity. Sign up below to get printables for each color that you can transform into playdough playmats. A tip is to print on cardstock and to laminate each page for multiple uses. On the playmats, the kids will be able to:

  • Shape the playdough to spell the color word in Tagalog.
  • Create an object of that color using the playdough.
  • Use their creativity to make their own playdough creation with the same color.
