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!
