These te reo Māori printables are made for the Homeschool, Pre-school and Primary school. There is so much fun to be had using these with your learner (and yourself).

For the kaiako these are great as as interactive activity on the wall or in a folder.
To further progress te reo there are questions to ask your learner, which are on some of the pages and on a cheat sheet.
“Ko te aha tēnei tau?” What’s this number?” and the answer “Ko te…”
