A fabulous resource to have in New Zealand classrooms when studying Māori Myths and Legends. Great for a follow-up activity after reading the story, or to have as an early-finisher task. 12 word searches. Eleven of the word searches have a Māori themed border or panel that can be coloured after finding all of the words. One word search has a flame/fire themed border (How Maui Found the Secret of Fire). These word searches are designed to go with the fabulous stories written by Peter Gossage. These books are commonly found in NZ schools and are also easily available for purchase in book stores. (They have amazing artwork!) The words used in the word searches are taken from the stories in these books. The 12 Word Searches: ♦ How Maui Slowed the Sun ♦ The Fish of Maui ♦ How Maui Found his Father and the Magic Jawbone ♦ How Maui Found his Mother ♦ In the Beginning ♦ How Maui Defied the Goddess of Death ♦ How Maui Found the Secret of Fire ♦ Battle of the Mountains ♦ Pania of the Reef ♦ Rona and the Moon ♦ The Giant of Lake Wakatipu ♦ Hinemoa and Tūtānekai Each word search is on A4 size paper and can easily be reduced to A5 if necessary.

Maori Language Days Months and Seasons PowerPoint 5 in a Row Game New Zealand Te Reo

Maori Language Days Months and Seasons PowerPoint 5 in a Row Game New Zealand Te Reo

Students build Maori Language Fluency, identifying Maori days months and seasons, with this no fuss 5 in a Row PowerPoint game. Students convert the Maori word to English on their playing board.This game is self running either individually, as a group, or as a whole class. Either way, students find it entertaining, engaging and fun and is ideal for Maori Language week as well as all year round. I have included 2 versions of the game with this download. One, a beginner game with the answers appearing after 5 seconds and two, an advanced game that the students need to translate the Maori language independently or in small groups. The games can run on computers, whiteboards or projectors. All that is required is that you print, cut and laminate the Playing Boards and press shuffle and then start on the PowerPoint Show. There are 30 different Playing Boards for your students to choose from and with the shuffling ability of the game, every game is different so that your students do not get bored of it. This game is self timed with a 10 second interval between the questions giving the students enough time to mark off or put a counter on their Playing Board.

Māori High Frequency Words – Feed the Taniwha

Māori High Frequency Words – Feed the Taniwha

A super-fun, hands-on activity for students learning to read the first 350 high frequency Māori words. Read the word on the kūmara chip and feed it through the hole in the mouth of the taniwha. Included: ♦ 350 kūmara chips - coloured ♦ 350 kūmara chips – black/white ♦ Chip templates (add extra words if necessary) – coloured & black/white. ♦ Taniwha – black/white for your students to decorate and personalise. ♦ Taniwha – 4 different coloured options ♦ Teacher notes Please click on the ‘Look inside’ button above to see examples. Activity Suggestions: ♦ Place the kūmara chips into a container. Students draw one out and read the word aloud. If they read it correctly, they feed it through the mouth of the taniwha. If not, they put the chip back into the container. ♦ Place the kūmara chips on the table/floor. The teacher says ‘find the word _____ and feed it to your taniwha’. This could be a race between a small group of students, or they could each have a word to find and feed. Preparation: ♦ Laminate the taniwha. Cut a hole in the mouth where indicated (to feed the chips through). It is suggested that you attach the laminated taniwha to a 2-litre ice-cream container so that it stands up. This will also give the chips something to fall into. ♦ Print the chips with the words that you would like to use. Laminate and cut. Place into a container (or something like a chip carton from a fast food outlet). Designed on A4 size paper. 14 kūmara chips on each page. The words used in this resource are the first 350 words from a list on TKI called ‘1000 frequent words of Māori – in frequency order’. Permission has been granted.
