It’s summertime and many people are traveling and going on vacation. What a perfect time to learn Tagalog words all about traveling.
Activity: My “Maleta” (Suitcase)
This first activity teaches you the vocabulary words for items you possibly would pack in your suitcase. Here is a four-page printable for your child to learn the names of common items to pack, a suitcase to “pack” these items in, and two packing lists (one with English translation and the other is Tagalog only).
First, the child will decorate his/her suitcase (or “maleta” in Tagalog).
The next step is to color the items and cut them out. Review the English and Tagalog words for the travel supplies.
One by one, the travel supply will be placed in the suitcase and a dry erase marker can be used to check it off on the list. Once the child is comfortable, the Tagalog only Packing List can be used.
It can be printed on regular 8.5″ x 11″ paper. It will be more durable on cardstock or if the papers will be laminated. For repeated use, the packing lists can be slipped into one of these reusable dry-erase pocket sleeves.

Activity 2: Tagalog Traveling Board Game- (Forms of Transportation in Tagalog)
Here is a printable board game to review numbers 1 through 5 in Tagalog and to introduce five different forms of transportation in Tagalog. Our family is big on board games to have fun together and if we can combine it with concepts to learn, even better!
Here are some tips to make the game more durable:
- Print the game on cardstock.
- Laminate the game, game pieces, and number cards.
- Glue the game pieces on a thin cardboard (e.g. cereal box, tissue box …etc.) Snip the bottom and insert another cardboard to help the game piece stand. Here are some images to show you the steps.
- First, glue the game piece to a cardboard that is slightly larger than the game piece.
Cut a small slit at the bottom of the piece. Be careful not to cut through the picture.
Cut a small rectangular piece of the cardboard the same length as the game piece.
Insert the cardboard inside of the slit of the game piece. (It will look like a +).
Trim off any cardboard as necessary to help make it stand up straight.
