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.

    Nga mihi maioha kia koe Tania! We have been using He Reo Tupu, He Reo Ora daily since the start of this year and our tamariki love everything about it.

    As a bilingual unit in a mainstrem setting, we have a broad range of abilities regarding Te Reo, from Kohanga Reo tamariki to theose who are learning Te Reo for the first time. However, we have a firm committment towards enhancing the Reo of all our tamariki. We began each day with Karakia as a whanau with our tamariki leading karakia, waiata, whakatauki, pepeha and panui. As we have 6 different year groups, there is a clear progression in content and context.

    As we all know, the use IT tools in class is having a huge impact upon teaching and learning and the reomations have been really successful.

    We have also been using the 'Te Arapu Maori' provided by HUIA publishing and have decided to create a video that we hopefully will post on Youtube and enter this into the local Digiawards this year.
