Counting Numbers 1 to 10 in Tagalog
Counting is a basic skill that children learn at a very young age. It is very easy to apply in our daily conversation as we count items around them such as toys, snacks, people, cars we see on the road, etc.
We have a few resources to share below to teach numbers 1 – 10 in Tagalog.
Tagu-Taguan: A Counting Book in Filipino
Tagu-Taguan: A Counting Book in Filipino, written and illustrated by Jomike Tejido, is a Tagalog book that teaches numbers one through 10 and also various insects.
Throughout the book, it shows 10 different insects hiding in nature, and counts from 10 to 1.
Tagu-Taguan is completely in Tagalog and a great way to introduce lots of vocabulary.
Francesca: Isa, Dalawa, Sorpresa!
Francesca: Isa, Dalawa, Sorpresa!, written by Cel Tria and illustrated by Gel Relova, is a charming book about a girl, Francesca, celebrating her birthday. This is a bilingual book (English & Tagalog) that introduces learning concepts including colors, numbers, and birthday party elements. It too counts down from 10 to 1 as we learn a new element for the party. (We did a whole review of the book & e-Book of Francesca in another blog post. Read our full review here).
Isa, Dalawa, Tatlo … Ito Ay Obalo!: Numbers and Shapes in Filipino
Isa, Dalawa, Tatlo … Ito Ay Obalo!: Numbers and Shapes in Filipino is a Filipino children’s book that is part of a series by Joy Francisco. This particular book was illustrated by Jamie Lee Ortiz.
The pages have a clean look of vibrant colors and basic shapes with the Tagalog and English words for the numbers and shapes.
Joy Francisco continues to add on to her developing series of books to introduce basic learning concepts and Tagalog vocabulary. You can learn more about her and the other books she has produced on her website, Little Yellow Jeepney.
Printable Coloring Activity
To reinforce learning, we created a printable coloring booklet to teach numbers 1 through 10 in Tagalog.
In addition, my kids came up with and recorded an original Fil-Am Learners song to practice singing numbers 1 through 10 in Tagalog.
