National Anthem of the Philippines

PAMBANSANG AWIT NG PILIPINAS 


Bayang magiliw 
Perlas ng Silanganan, 
Alab ng puso 
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay. 

Lupang hinirang 
Duyan ka ng magiting 
Sa manlulupig 
Di ka pasisiil. 

Sa dagat at bundok 
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw, 
May dilag ang tula 
At awit sa paglayang minamahal. 

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y 
Tagumpay na nangniningning; 
Ang bituin at araw niya 
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim. 

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta, 
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo, 
Aming ligaya na pag may mang-aapi 
Ang mamatay nang dahil sa iyo. 

 

English Translation The Philippine Hymn

Translation by: Camilo Osias and A.L. Lane

Land of the morning,

Child of the sun returning,

With fervor burning,

Thee do our souls adore.

 

Land dear and holy,

Cradle of noble heroes,

Ne'er shall invaders

Trample thy sacred shore.

 

Ever within thy skies and through thy clouds

And o'er thy hills and sea,

Do we behold the radiance, feel and throb,

Of glorious liberty.

 

Thy banner, dear to all our hearts,

Its sun and stars alight,

O never shall its shining field

Be dimmed by tyrant's might!

 

Beautiful land of love, o land of light,

In thine embrace 'tis rapture to lie,

But it is glory ever, when thou art wronged,

For us, thy people to suffer and die.

The Philippines                                

 

Days ago, Weeks ago,

Hundreds of years ago,

Near the Pacific on some island shore,

Stories relayed of historic events,

Passed over lips of our elders before,

 

Even tonight, 

Before this dream,

Lola told us a story of…

 

The Philippines,

Thousands of islands,

Land of some ancestor’s birth,

The Philippines,

A home away from home,

On Earth,

Look to the sky,

And imagine the faces,

Of our distant cousins

Scattered ‘cross the sphere,

Believe you will fly,

Someday to other places,

Settings of stories that come to life here,

Far, far away,

In sweet Lola’s song,

Reminding us of where we have come from,

 

The Philippines,

Thousands of islands,

Land of ancestors’ birth,

The Philippines,

A home away from home,

On Earth.

Transition Music    Can you imagine a terrible storm?

A hurricane or a mighty typhoon,

Could be a human or a natural force,

We will await the return of the moon.

 

 

“My Last Farewell” featuring the first stanza of “Mi último adios” by José Rizal”

 

Farewell, my adored Land, region of the sun caress'd,


Pearl of the Orient Sea, our Eden lost,

With gladness I give thee my Life, sad and repress'd;

And were it more brilliant, more fresh and at its best,


I would still give it to thee for thine welfare at most.

 

This is the final farewell,

Of a hero named José Rizal,

Novelist, artist, naturalist, 

Teacher, ophthalmologist as well,

Whose light was eclipsed by imperialists,

José Rizal.

 

Pinipintuho kong Bayan ay paalam,

Lupang iniirog ng sikat ng araw,

mutyang mahalaga sa dagat Silangan,

kaluwalhatiang sa ami'y pumanaw.

 

This is the final farewell,

Of a hero named José Rizal,

Revolutionary of the late Nineteenth Century,

From Calamba, Laguna,

Whose light still shines bright at the heart of a country,

José Rizal, José Rizal, Doctor José Rizal.

VMD Song"

 

by Ate Charity Ramilo

 

 

 

C, Am, G (chorus)

Dm, Am (Verse) F, G

 

Koro:  Sino po si VMD?
          Alam ni’yo po si VMD?
         (Tandaan ni’yo po si) Victoria Manalo Draves!

          Mahalaga siyang Fi-Am Bayani!

 

Talata/Taludtod

Nag-aral siya dito sa SoMA

Mahilig siyang lumangoy

Marami siyang pinagdaanan

Hindi siyang pinapayagan

dahil sa kanyang pangalan

Pati pa, binawal nila

Ang kanyang magulang

Discriminasyon
ang tawag noon.

Kahit na, pinatuloy niya

Ang kanyang pangarap

(Ulitin ang Koro)

Talata:

 

Tumalon at nanalo siya sa Olympics

Ng dalawang gintong Medalya

Bayani siya sa mga babae
At sa mga Fil-Am

Na kahit papano

dapat sundin mo

ang iyong panarap

Sa lahat na ranasan niya,

Matatag siya!

(Ulitin ang Koro)

"VMD Song"

 

by Ate Charity Ramilo

 

Chorus:   Who is VMD?
               Do you know VMD?
               (Please remember) Victoria Manalo Draves!      

               She’s a Fil-Am Shero!

 

Verse 1:

 

She went to school in the Soma.

She loved to swim.
She experienced a lot.
They didn’t allow her to swim

Because of her name

They didn’t even allow her parents to watch.

Discrimination was its real name.

With all she went through,

She’s resilient, too!

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2:

She dove...
She won in the Olympics
2 Gold Medals
She’s a shero to women and Fil-Ams

Depite all the hardship
Follow your dream!

With all she went through,

She’s resilient, too!

Repeat Chorus

Cooperation

Cooperation,

Working together for the common good,

Cooperation,

Working together like we know we should,

More heads for thinking,

More hands to build,

Cooperation,

Working together for the common good.

Be a good leader, 

A good follower too,

Let others on your team

show what they can do,

Think before acting,

Listen well,

Use a calm voice,

When you have something to tell.

Cooperation,

Working together for the common good,

Cooperation,

Working together like we know we should,

More heads for thinking,

More hands to build,

Cooperation,

Working together for the common good.

A table needs moving,

Time to put on a show,

The kitchen needs cleaning,

There's a garden to grow,

Let's build a house,

It's easy you'll see,

When we are working

In company.

Cooperation,

Working together for the common good,

Cooperation,

Working together like we know we should,

More heads for thinking,

More hands to build,

Cooperation,

Working together for the common,

Working together for the common,

Working together for the common good.

da, da, da, da, da - POP!

                  Oceans are bigger than seas.

            Seas are different from lakes.

            Lakes are different from rivers,

            And rivers are bigger than streams.

            Water falls down from the clouds.

            Then the water evaporates.

 

Chorus    It’s a cycle.

               It’s a cycle.

               Water goes up and then water comes down.

               It’s a cycle.

               It’s a cycle,

               A cycle we need to survive.

Mr. Peter:   Okay, I have a question. 

                  How many oceans are there on the earth?

 

While there is only one global ocean, the vast body of water that covers 71 percent of the Earth is geographically divided into distinct named regions. The boundaries between these regions have evolved over time for a variety of historical, cultural, geographical, and scientific reasons. 

 

Historically, there are four named oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and Arctic. However, most countries - including the United States - now recognize the Southern (Antarctic) as the fifth ocean. The Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian are known as the three major oceans.

 

          There are five oceans on earth:

          The Atlantic, the Atlantic,

          The Pacific, the Pacific,

          The Indian, the Indian,

          The Southern, The Southern

          The a-a-a-a-a-a-a-rcti-i-i-i-i-c

 

Mr. P:     Hands up!

           Water falls down from the clouds.

           Then the water evaporates.

Chorus    It’s a cycle.

               It’s a cycle.

               Water goes up and then water comes down.

               It’s a cycle.

               It’s a cycle,

               A cycle we need to survive.

Place Value

Substitute the underlined digits and values to create new verses.

A one is only one when it's in the ones' place.

In the tens place, a one is worth ten.

And when the one is in the hundreds' place,

it's worth a whopping one hundred.

And in the next place over,

a one is ten times more.

That would be one thousand,

counting up the score.

Place value, base 10 is what we use

as the digits move to the left.

What is its place value?

Give it its value due.

All depends where the digit is set.

            but does it work for teamwork?

Cooperation

5          Studio Habits of Mind, How to cooperate….

            We learn so much through singing.

Recuérdame hoy me tengo que ir mi amor
Recuérdame, no llores por favor
Te llevo en mi corazón y cerca me tendrás
A solas yo te cantaré soñando en regresar
recuerdame, aunque tenga que emigrar
Recuérdame, si mi guitarra oyes llorar
Ella con su triste canto te acompañará
Hasta que en mis brazos estés
Recuérdame

Remember me, though I have to say "Good bye,"

Remember me, don't let it make you cry,

For even if I'm far away, 

I'll hold you in my heart,

I'll sing a secret song to you,

Each night we are apart,

Remember be, though I have to travel far,

Remember me,

Each time you hear a sad guitar,

Know that I am with you the only way that I can be,

Until you're in my arms again,

Remember me.
