52 WEEKS – WHAKAMANATIA TE REO

16. Kei Te Pēhea …?

Back to 52 Weeks

Kaupapa

We are going to learn to ask ‘how’ someone or something is.

For your Kete

Waiata & Karakia
Rangahau: Have you learnt yet the school waiata and karakia from your Kura Kāinga? Local waiata and karakia are an important aspect of localised curriculum. Learning them not only increases our local knowledge but also demonstrates whakamana and esteem.  

In preparation for class this week, create a resource to share with a small group. It should include as many of the following as you can:

  • The words for the waiata and karakia
  • The values and ideas behind the waiata and karakia (This could be a translation.)
  • A link to a recording of each – this could be of other people or of you!

Kōrero / Whakarongo: In class we will work in small groups to share what we have learnt.

Whakataukī
Review our whakataukī from “6. Whakamanawa / Encouragement”. It is a great one for encouraging students:

Ka mahi te tawa uho ki te riri
Well done, you whose courage is like the heart of the tawa tree.

Wetereo

In te reo the question of ‘how’ someone or something is, is asked using the verbal sentence structure.

Like the other question structures that we have learnt, the question can be answered by replacing the question word.

Tuhia: Use the kupu hou above to write some more questions and answers to these questions.

Wero: Write questions and use them  in your classroom!
