COVID-19 Dictionary for Filipino Children in Filipino and English (Full Version)

The COVID-19 Dictionary for Filipino Children is a gift of the Reading, Early Grades, Art and Language Education (REGALE) cluster of the UP College of Education to children and their families. We hope that this dictionary will help young learners understand the key terms associated with the pandemic we are all experiencing. We made the dictionary in both Filipino and English so that it will be accessible to more Filipino children. We likewise collaborated with children, parents and teachers from the Deaf community in order to produce videos of the Filipino Signs for the terms in the dictionary. Links to these FSL videos were embedded in the dictionary. Some entries have been updated in accordance with the comments and suggestions of those who have initially seen and used it.

DIKSYUNARYONG PAMBATA: Ano ang Bagong Klasipikasyon ng mga Kaso ng COVID-19? | Paano Nilalabanan ang Pandemiyang COVID-19?

Para sa mga magulang,

Masaya naming ibinabahagi sa inyo ang huling pangkat ng mga salita sa aming Diksyunaryong COVID-19 Para sa mga Bata. Ang edisyong ito ay naglalayong maipaunawa sa bawat bata na ang COVID-19 ay pwedeng labanan sa pamamagitan ng pagtutulungan ng iba’t ibang sektor.

Narito rin ang mga bagong terminolohiya ayon sa WHO at DOH na ginagamit para sa klasipikasyon ng mga kaso ng COVID-19. Hinihikayat namin kayong talakayin ang mga salitang ito kasama ang pangatlong pangkat ng mga salita (Paano nalalaman kung may COVID-19 ang isang tao?) upang matulungan ang mga batang higit na maunawaan ang prosesong ginagawa upang matukoy ang mga may sakit na COVID-19.

Maaaring ma-download ang kopya ng diksyunaryo sa bit.ly/dictionaryforchildren.

Maraming salamat po!

DICTIONARY FOR CHILDREN: What is the New Classification of COVID-19 Cases? | How is the COVID-19 Pandemic Being Fought?

Dear parents,

We are happy to share with you the last group of words in our COVID-19 Dictionary for Children. This edition aims to inform each child that COVID-19 can be fought by different sectors working together.

Included also are the new terminologies from WHO and DOH that are now being used to classify COVID-19 cases. We encourage you to discuss these words together with the third cluster of terms (What is the process used to find out if a person has COVID-19?) to help children better understand what is being done to identify those with the COVID-19 disease.

REwearing Masks and Breaking the Chain of Infection of COVID-19

Dear All,

I am delighted to share with you two infographics that were developed by our Health Education Area in order to remind us to do our share in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

The first infographic explains the steps on how to properly use a REwear mask (re-usable, washable, re-wearable mask) designed by the Department of Science and Technology. It encourages everyone to not only wear a mask when going out but to ensure that it is PROPERLY worn, which means that it fits snugly and entirely covers the mouth and the nose.

Meanwhile, the second infographic is an updated version of Breaking the Chain of Infection of COVID-19. It explains that there are six elements that are needed to spread a communicable disease such as COVID-19 and preventing its transmission entails cutting the chain from any of its points. An earlier version of the chain was already disseminated in March and was translated into 14 languages.

It is our hope that by promoting personal and social responsibility, our wellbeing as a people will be ensured and we will be able to beat our common invisible enemy. Together, we are stronger!

DICTIONARY FOR CHILDREN: What is the Process Used to Find Out If a Person has COVID-19?

Dear parents,

We are glad to share with you the third group of words in our COVID-19 Dictionary for Children. These words discuss ways to determine if a person has COVID-19. Your children will need more guidance to understand the technical terms included in this edition. Although there is a new classification of COVID-19 cases, we decided to include the definitions of former terminologies because these continue to be used in different parts of our country. Our college will come out with a new set of definitions to explain the new terminologies. You may download a copy of the dictionary at bit.ly/dictionaryforchildren.
Thank you very much!

DIKSYUNARYONG PAMBATA: Paano Nalalaman Kung May COVID-19 Ang Isang Tao?

Para sa mga magulang,
Ikinatutuwa naming ibahagi sa inyo ang ikatlong pangkat ng mga salita sa aming Diksyunaryong COVID-19 Para sa mga Bata. Ito ay tumatalakay sa mga paraan kung paano nalalalaman sino ang may COVID-19. Higit na kinakailangan ang inyong paggabay upang mas maunawaan ng mga bata ang mga teknikal na salita sa edisyong ito. Bagaman may bagong klasipikasyon ng mga kaso ng COVID-19, nagpasya kaming bigyang kahulugan pa rin ang mga dating terminolohiya dahil patuloy itong ginagamit sa ibang lugar sa ating bansa. Maglalabas ang kolehiyo ng bagong pangkat ng mga salita na tumatalakay sa mga bagong terminolohiya. Maaring madownload ang kopya ng diksyunaryo sa bit.ly/dictionaryforchildren.
Maraming salamat po!
