Matariki Workshop for ECE and Junior Classes

I am really excited to offer these workshops in Auckland.
As with all of my workshops we will “play” with the resources specially made for the kaupapa (topic). This kaupapa is Matariki or “Ngā Mata o te Ariki Tāwhirimātea”-The eyes of the god Tāwhirimātea.
One of the main focuses will be on looking at some Māori perspectives of Matariki rather than westernised adaptations of this special celebration.

Our work will be around:
*Using te reo questioning or language integrated with play
*Counting and number- Matariki themed
*The Matariki story
*Star crafts and meanings
*Using some simple language in rhymes and waiata

We will include strategies around pronunciation in simple activities to support teachers while they learn too!
