Ang Alamat ni Daragang Mayon


Noong unang panahon, may isang babaeng nagngangalang Daragang Magayon. Maraming kalalakihan ang nanliligaw sa nasabing dalaga sapagkat siya ay maganda at may makinis na kutis. Ayon sa ama ni Magayon na si Rajah Makusog nasa tamang edad na ang dalaga upang magpakasal kung kaya't pinapayagan na niya ito kung sakaling magpasya ang dalaga na makipag-isang dibdib. Ngunit si Magayon ay wala pang napipili mula sa kanyang mga manliligaw. Magpapakasal lang daw siya sa taong kanyang iniirog.

The Legend of Mayon Volcano

The Legend of the Mayon Volcano

Panganoron & Magayon

Long ago in a place called Ibalon, there lived a beautiful maiden. Her name was Daragang Magayon (the lovely one). She was the daughter of Makusog (the strong one), chief of the tribe.

One day, Daragang Magayon strolled near the river. While crossing the river, she stumbled on a rock and fell quickly in the water. She was swiftly swept down stream by the current.

“Help! Help me!” she cried. Fortunately, her cries were heard by Pangaronon (the proud one) and his bodyguard Amihan (the cold one). Pangaronon jumped into the river and saved Daragang Magayon.

“Thank you for risking your life to save me”, she cried. “How can I repay you? My father is the chief of our tribe. Surely, he will reward your heroism whatever it may take.”

In The Beginning by Raquel Narca


By Raquel Narca for Storytelling Philippines

Teaching reading is a dynamic activity. In a kindergaten classroom, I integrate the target lesson for the day, play, critical thinking, creativity, and values formation with our daily story reading. Using books and storytelling in the classroom is literature-based teaching.
