Kei ngā kaiwhāngai i ā tātou tamariki, tēnei au te tuku kupu whakamiha ki a koutou.

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori takes place between Monday, 21 July and Sunday, 27 July 2014. The theme for this year is "Te kupu o te wiki, The word of the week". This theme promotes learning te reo Māori throughout the year rather than during just one week.

With te wiki o te reo Māori soon, I have started this kōrero to share resources and stories around the learning and teaching of te reo Māori.

Here is a list of resources to start:

I invite you to share any resources or kōrero associated with this kaupapa.

    Ko tēnei te Wiki mō te Reo Māori - 50 kupu (words) for 50 wiki (weeks) http://goo.gl/WfQ7uH

    Te Kupu o te Wiki 

    Te Kupu o te Wiki will introduce 50 new Māori words to the nation over 50 weeks – one new word a week over almost a year. After 50 weeks, New Zealanders will have 50 new Māori words in their vocabulary. 

    The wero>>>

    • getting involved and having a go!

    • encouraging schools you’re working with to get on board too! Encourage schools to invite their staff, students, parents, families, whānau and communities to get involved

    • exploring ways you could promote each new kupu (word) each week through your work with schools e.g. emails, staff meetings, newsletters, teaching and learning, and social media

    • incorporating te reo Māori, especially the new vocabulary, into everyday language

    • follow @reomaori on Twitter, and tweet using #tekupu

    • like the facebook page for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

    • checking out and using the resources, including the list of the 50 kupu Māori, that can be found on the Korero Māori website


    Thanks Dee Reid for sharing this valuable resource.
