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.

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
