Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

Started by Tania 10 Jun 2012 11:38am () Replies (21)

The dates for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori/Māori Language Week are 23-29 July. This year, the theme is -Arohatia te Reo, which means 'to cherish the language.'

I have been reflecting on the following questions and would love to share some ideas.

How do you 'cherish the language' in your daily practice?

How do you encourage our tamariki to cherish the language?

 How can we utilise ICT to support us in cherishing the language?

If you are wanting resources to support Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, there are FREE resources available through the Korero Māori Website.  There are also lots of ideas on the Maōri Language Week page.

    Tēnā koutou e ngā mātāwaka
    Check out some of the flipbooks for students beginning to learn to read and write te reo Māori with progressing levels from the Mātauranga Māori website http://eng.mataurangamaori.tki.org.nz/Rauemi-tautoko/Te-Reo-Maori/Te-Huinga-Raukura
    There is also a Teacher resource exchange on the site if anyone has any resources for teaching/learning te reo Māori they would like to share. They don't have to be curriculum or marautanga specifically aligned or entirely in te reo. The main aim is to get this facility up and going.

    Ngā mihi manahau ki a koutou katoa whakapau kaha nei ki te hāpai i tēnei taonga nui whakaharahara

    While Janelle Riki was working as a Digi Advisor, she worked on the development of a Māori catalogue of Digistore resources. This showcases some excellent resources written in Māori that could be used with students. The catalogue, a presentation on Māori digital resources we put together as part of an online webinar, and a host of useful Māori links that Janelle has gathered into Delicious stacks are all available on the Digistore wiki:

    Wōu, ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa, koutou i koha nei i ō koutou huatau ki tēnei whenu kōrero mō tō tātou reo. Kātahi nā te tangata ko tērā Ronald Nolan, koia kei a ia mō te whakaako tamariki, ā, koia kei a ia hoki mō ngā āhuatanga hākinakina...lol.

    For the past few years teaching within the classroom 'cherishing our language' was a daily occurance and a notion that we pushed within our localised curriculum. We as a whānau did what we could to nurture, develop and instill Te Reo within our tamariki with ranges of ability & knoweldge of Te Reo Māori. Aligning day to day classroom practices to Tikanga Māori gave us direction which similar to Ron started the day with 'Ngā Āhuatanga o te Paepae'. this was aspects such as Tauparapara, Mihimihi, Pepeha, Waiata, Whakatauki, Ngā āhuatanga o te kura, he mihi whakatepe. Using alot of games which we mainly developed through 'Ngā Mahi a Tāne Rore' and then transferred these into the classroom. Another strategy we found was using 'Pāngarau' as the main tool to develop vocab along with strategies as we know not only our tamariki but as soon as we add competition to an activity the kids engage and before they know it are using and testing their own ability within Te Reo Māori.

    How do you encourage our tamariki to cherish the language?

    We found that to engage our tamariki within Te Reo we first needed to look at a basic history of Te Reo Māori and it's challenges over the past decades along with connecting these kōrero to their own whānau, hapū, marae or Iwi kōrero. Once tamariki could connect with their own reo/tikanga they had a sense of ownership and possibly felt as a link in the chain is to revitalising Te Reo within their own whānau thus ensuring they were then cherising Te Reo Māori. 

    ICT can engage out tamariki to explore, develop and unpack our language. There is alot of rauemi on the world wide web for Te Reo Māori, have a look at my blog below and if you have any that i have missed then add away. The biggest tool that we utilised within the classroom in terms of IT was Māori Television, Ipukarea and also the most important Papa Kupu. We firstly needed to develop our curriculum more to better cater for the e-learning within our setting and with that came the PD around staff and whānau. Awesome journey to be on board with.

    I guess we need to ensure that for our tamariki to 'cherish our language' we firstly need to model and nurture our own ability/knowledge within te Reo Māori. Hei whakatepe ake...Ko te reo kia tika, ko te reo kia rere, ko te reo kia kounga, ko te reo kia Māori.
