Te Reo Maori Words that Every Kiwi Should Know

Te Reo Maori Words that Every Kiwi Should Know

This fun and engaging game helps to reinforce and introduces students to the Maori language. The games shuffle ability assures that no two games are ever the same which means you can use the same resource multiple times. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. This is a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy

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.

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.

The Adventures of Sajo and her Beaver People Reading Comprehension

The Adventures of Sajo and her Beaver People Reading Comprehension

In this Canadian classic, you will read about an Ojibwa brother and sister, 11-year old Sajo and 14-year-old Shapian, and their adorable pet beavers, Chilawee and Chikanee. One spring day, Sajo's father rescues two baby beavers from an otter attack and brings them home to their village. After one of the beavers must be traded for food, Sajo and Shapian set off to see if they can buy him back. Travelling by canoe and by train, they face various challenges on their trip to the City. They employ skills they have learned from their Ojibwa elders, and are also helped by a Missionary, American tourists, and an Irish policeman. Written in the style of old-fashioned classics like ‘Heidi’, this original tale by the renowned British-Canadian conservationist known as ‘Grey Owl’ is both informative and touching. Rich and reportedly accurate descriptions of the Eastern Canadian wilderness provide the backdrop to a story of caring people who triumph in their efforts to reunite two baby beavers with their family and finally return them to the wilderness. Illustrations by the author and a glossary of Ojibwa terms are of further interest. The book is divided into 23 chapters. Write your own definitions, answer reading comprehension questions, and research 22 topics (ranging from how otters and beavers hunt and eat, to how elevators and steamboats work). For each of these activities, you may go into great detail, or just scratch the surface – the material is adaptable to different students. Enjoy a trip into the past with a sincere story-teller and lovable characters! Research topics: Jacques Cartier, Ojibwa tea, beaver dams and lodges, how otters hunt, feeding human food to wildlife, Ojibwa/European trade, what beavers eat in the wild, what instinct is, the Hudson’s Bay Company, birch bark canoes, what ‘portage’ means, forest fires, steamboats, who are the Ojibwa, Native American spiritual beliefs, animals in zoos versus in the wild, travelling by train in Canada (in the past), how elevators work, the importance of saying thank you, what bannock is, autumn around the world, how dangerous wolves really are. Bonus! This title includes a set of Canadian Wilderness themed notebooking pages.

Māori Alphabet - Drive to the Whare

Māori Alphabet - Drive to the Whare

A Māori alphabet letter recognition activity for NZ junior students. Print and laminate the sheets and place them together to form a ‘road’. Your students drive a toy car along the road and park at the whare that is the answer to a question you give them. And just because you’ve stopped by and read this description, you get to see that this resource includes more than just the alphabet … Included in this resource: ♦ Alphabet – lower case – all vowels on one page ♦ Alphabet – lower case - jumbled ♦ Alphabet – upper case – all vowels on one page ♦ Alphabet – upper case - jumbled ♦ Numbers – numerals 1-20 - ordered ♦ Numbers – numerals 1-20 - jumbled ♦ Numbers – words 1-10 (tahi-tekau) - ordered ♦ Numbers – words 1-10 (tahi-tekau) - jumbled ♦ Blank template (black and white) for your students to make their own ‘Drive to the whare’ activity. There are 10 whares on each page. Because the alphabet only has 15 letters, I have included the vowels with macrons so that the resource is 2 complete A4 size pages. So what it means by ‘all vowels on one page’ is that there are the 5 vowels on one side and 5 vowels with macrons on the other side of the street. The toy cars are not included in this resource. You don’t have to use cars, you could use trucks, motorbikes, horses, etc. Your students could bring a toy car from home if you don’t have any. Examples of Activities: * Drive your car to a whare where the letter _______ lives. * Drive your car to a whare where the letter that makes the ____ sound lives. * Drive your car to a whare where the letter lives that is at the start of the word ____. * Drive your car to a whare where a vowel lives. * Drive your car to a whare that has a letter that is in your name. * Drive your car to a number that is one more than ‘rima’. * Drive your car to a number that is the answer to 5+3. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
