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 – Taniwha Stomp

Māori High Frequency Words – Taniwha Stomp

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. The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’. The 350 words used in this resource are sourced from a list on TKI called ‘1000 frequent words of Māori – in frequency order’. Permission has been granted.

Aborigines - Clash of Cultures and Colonialism

Aborigines - Clash of Cultures and Colonialism

This lesson looks at the tragic story of the colonisation of Australia and the destruction of the Aboriginal way of life. There are several resources you can use for this lesson (and you might want to use this over two or three lessons - there is a lot here!). The students investigate whether or not we should apologise for the actions of our ancestors, and how it could/should be made right today. A really good lesson.
