Palay, Bigas & Kanin

We introduced our workshop topic, Bigas o Kanin? with a popular tune, Magtanim ay di Biro.  But wouldn't you know it, the composer also created many other songs that our students knew!  So with the help of our student teachers, we had a belated caroling session singing the popular medley, Pasko na Naman and Noche Buena, both composed by prolific composer and National Artist, Felipe Padilla de Leon.

Yuko! and Ate happily obliged, showing our saling-pusa kids the action words from our song of the month.  Later, with the help of their noisemakers--little plastic eggs filled with (what else?) bigas, they demonstrated tayo! upo! and yuko! to the big kids in class.

We had puto for merienda, quite appropriately showing the many things made from rice to our kids.  But many lessons are remembered better when the hands are involved, and as a bonus, if these same hands make something edible and yummy.  Perhaps you can guess what we made and ate that afternoon?
