Free K-12 Learning Materials

The Department of Education (DepEd) released free K-12 learning materials that are accessible to all students (and parents), in both public and private schools. You can download or access the materials accordingly.

Reminder: DepEd is continuously updating the free K-12 Learning Materials on their Google Drive and on Deped Commons. You can copy your local version, and check back again later for updates and new materials. The subjects listed below are what are in the folders as of the writing of this article.

Required Software for Accessing the Free K-12 Learning Materials

Please make sure your PC has Microsoft Office installed, or other open-source office applications to open the files properly. For android phones and iPhones, no need to worry as your phone apps can open these worksheet materials for Grades 1 to 10 without a problem and just using default apps that are usually in your phones already.

Microsoft Office, or simply Office, is a family of client software, server software, and services developed by Microsoft. You can purchase it from this link.

While Microsoft Office is the industry standard in terms of, integrated applications for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, database management, email, and desktop publishing. However, if you are in a tight budget, you can use open source applications that are absolutely free. Just download, and install any of the following:

  1. Apache OpenOffice is one of the better-known open-source office software suites available. It provides tools for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, and databases. Apache OpenOffice lets you save documents in the OpenDocument format, read Microsoft Word documents, and save your work in Microsoft Word format.
  2. LibreOffice boasts the same six applications as Apache OpenOffice—Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Base, and Math—but the two suites differ in terms of application features, usability and community support.
  3. The NeoOffice suite is an OpenOffice fork that was created before OpenOffice and LibreOffice supported Mac OS.
  4. Google Docs is an office productivity suite that lets anyone with a Google account create, share, and collaborate on the Web. Google offers tools for documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms, all centrally stored and accessed via the cloud-based storage service Google Drive.
  5. KOffice offers the three main tools of any office suite: a word processor, a spreadsheet, and a presentation application.

Learning never stops amidst global COVID-19 pandemic

According to UNICEF, the numbers are unprecedented, the implications enormous. As the COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the globe, a majority of countries have announced the temporary closure of schools, impacting more than 91 percent of students worldwide – around 1.6 billion children and young people.

Never before have so many children been out of school at the same time, disrupting learning and upending lives, especially the most vulnerable and marginalized.

In a statement from DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones, “Education must continue even in times of crisis, whether it may be a calamity, disaster, emergency, quarantine, or even war.” DepEd is trying to ensure children can continue learning during these difficult times and that all children, regardless of status, have equal access to quality education.
