Te kaupapa mō te reo Māori i tēnei wiki

Ata mārie whānau.  In both Whaea Hannah and Whaea Cha's rōpū for te reo Māori this week we are looking at how to say where something is.  

We are using kupu like:
Kei roto (inside)
Kei waho (outside)
Kei runga (on top)
Kei raro (under) 
Kei mua (in front)
Kei muri (behind)

If you would like to ask where something is you can use this sentence: Kei hea te kau?  Where is the cow?  And to respond you replace "hea" (which is the word to make it a question) with one of the kupu above.  For example, kei roto te kau which means the cow is on top.

In Whaea Hannah's rōpū we will extend ourselves to say things like: kei raro te kau i te tēpu (the cow is under the table).  

You can help at home by playing a game where one of you says the kupu above and the other does the action associated with it.  

Have fun!
