I am on a MISSION to have te reo Māori spoken in every classroom in Aotearoa.
This pae tukutuku (website) is to tautoko those many kaiako who are both teaching and learning te reo (at the same time).
The rauemi (resources) support Te Aho Arataki Marau mō te Ako i Te Reo Māori-Kura Auraki (Curriculum Guidelines for Teaching and Learning Te Reo Māori in English-medium Schools).
At this time these resources have a FULL SCHOOL LICENSE. Your WHOLE SCHOOL can use the resource at no extra expense. This is to encourage and support more te reo throughout your school.

Whakatauki Collaborative Poster A K O
Looking for an injection of te reo for your “AKO” theme?
This wonderful whakataukī may resonate with some of your learners and get them thinking about taking “action” in their learning choices.
“The crayfish won’t come to you” is a popular whakataukī in education.This tama lays on the water dreaming about crayfish. If he had the skills perhaps he could go and catch those crays!
Whāia te mātauranga- pursue knowledge/skills.
Collaborative posters are FUN!

This resource begins with the story of Tāwhirimātea. It tells how his eyes came to be the stars of Matariki. Hence the name “Ngā Mata o te Ariki Tāwhirimātea.” The Eyes of the God Tāwhirimātea” or Mata ariki.

Whakataukī Collaborative Poster – Mahitahi
This simple lesson is a great, inclusive, community building activity.
Each ākonga is given one section of a large mosaic poster to colour in. By looking carefully at their matching coloured piece, they practice blending and mixing colours as close as they can to the original. Once all sheets are coloured and cut out they are then assembled by the students, to reveal a large multi-colored mosaic/poster/mural, this one being a waka of kaihoe (paddlers).
