My memory of this is what started the idea for these whakataukī pages. Whakataukī are an amazingly simple but effective language mode and are recommended to be used in our teaching of te reo.
I have gathered both well-known and lesser known whakataukī.
One of the Tainui whakataukī “Waikato taniwha rau, he piko he taniwha” (Waikato of one hundred taniwha-at every bend a taniwha) has proven a favourite, possibly because of the very cool taniwha.
If you have been talking about Kotahitanga/mahi ngātahi you will love this whakataukī
“Kaua e rangiruatia te hāpai o te hoe; e kore tō tātou waka e ū ki uta”
Here is a preview-of book #2
One of the teachers who used it with her class made a talking pic with chatterpix and then uploaded it to seesaw. (Kia ora Whetu T.)
To me this is so appropriate after watching all the amazing taitamariki and their rōpū kapa haka last weekend.
I now have a Facebook page where I will show the resources as I finish them so you can have a closer look and ask questions.
