Montessori Filipino Worksheets: Patinig, Katinig, Pormasyon ng Pantig

HuntersWoodsPH Montessori Filipino Worksheets Mga Katinig

These worksheets are about the most basic building blocks of the Filipino (Tagalog) language: vowels (mga patinig), consonants (mga katinig), and syllables (mga pantig). They also help build a child’s Filipino vocabulary by using the Filipino names for some of the most common things that can be seen in and around the home.

 

  • The first two worksheets are about using mga patinig and mga katinig to complete must-know Filipino words.

  • The next two worksheets focus on syllables and how they are formed (pormasyon ng mga pantig) using standard combinations of vowels and consonants.

Montessori Filipino Worksheet: Pormasyon ng Pantig – Worksheet 2

This is another worksheet on pormasyon ng pantig or kayarian ng pantig. While the previous worksheet focused on composing a syllable with a vowel and/or consonant one by one, this worksheet is a bit more advanced and tries to get the child to identify the syllable structure as a whole.

 

This may also be a bit tricky: remember to review the letters in the Filipino alphabet and take particular note of the two consonants that are not in the English alphabet.
