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

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.

A fun resource for learning to read the first 350 high frequency Māori words. Included: ♦ 350 coloured footprints with mud background ♦ 350 black/white footprints ♦ Blank templates (coloured and black/white) ♦ Teacher notes Ideas for use: ♦ Place a track of footprints around the classroom. Students walk around the track, stomping on the footprints and reading the words (in a taniwha voice) as they go. ♦ Scatter the footprints on the floor. The teacher says a word. Which student can be the first to stomp on the correct word? (Be careful of little toes!) ♦ Print 2 sets and play ‘memory’. Place the cards face down. Students take turns at turning 2 cards over. If the words are the same, they keep the cards and have another turn. Who has the most pairs of cards at the end? ♦ Display the words around the classroom and go on a ‘taniwha hunt’. Who can find the word ‘haere’? Give your students a magnifying glass if you have some. ♦ Give the students a copy of the blank template (black and white). They can write a sight word in the footprint and decorate it. Perhaps you could staple a few together and make a little booklet. ♦ Create a ‘sentence stomp’. Make a sentence with the words and stomp it! 4 footprints per A4 size page. Enlarge to A3 if you want larger footprints. Blank templates are provided for you to add words if necessary.
