How are you going with the challenges we set ourselves?

Waiata & Karakia:
Review the four waiata and karakia that we have learnt over the past four weeks, as well as the four from earlier in the Semester. Spend some time creating visually engaging posters for your classroom walls so that everyone in your class can participate when these are used in your class.
Review the eight whakataukī that we have learnt so far.
Make sure you understand each one and consider a classroom activity or curriculum content that you would create links with.

Review the kupu hou lists that you have created. Create a mindmap that groups the words according to their meanings and the context in which they are used. What connections can you make between words? What patterns can you see? Test yourself.
Review the grammar points that you have covered. As you review the sentences that you have learnt to use, make sure you understand the grammatical structures that form them. This broader understanding will help you to use them as templates for creating more sentences.
