Poutama reo groups - Term 2, week 2.


Tupupupunga te reo

Last week my group learned to play Monopoly in Māori.
This week we learned to ask "what do you want?" and reply to the question.

He aha tō hiahia? What do you want?
Kei te hiahia au ki te .... I want the + noun/to+ verb.....

Sadie was our shopkeeper selling various items in our presentation.  
Raumana added his own twist at the end (youʻll have to ask him what that was). 


Te Puāwaitanga

Hei ngā wiki kei te haere mai, kei te ako ngā tamariki i te tikanga me te rerekētanga o te wai, hea, aha, tēhea, pēhea, me te hia. He kupu pātai ēnei?
Hei Tauira:
Mā wai ngā rīhi e horoi?
Mā hea haere ai ki Rotorua?
Kei te/I/I te/Kua/Ka aha...
Ko tēhea te pene tika?
I pēhea te kiriata?
Tokohia ngā kotiro?

Mena he pukapuka pānui tonu kei te kāinga, whakahokia mai.

In the weeks to come, the tamariki are learning the meaning and the differences of the wai, hea, aha, tēhea, pēhea and hia. These are all questioning words.
For example:
Who will wash the dishes?
How are we getting to Rotorua?
What are/is/have/will (happening)?
Which is the correct pen?
How was the movie?
How many girls are there?

If you have any of the reading books at home, please return them.


Te Oreorenga

This week we have been looking at antonyms in te reo Māori.

Here are the ones that we have been learning:
Nui/iti = big/little
Mā/paru = clean/dirty
Poto/roa = Short/long

We have put them into sentences that look like this:
He nui te arawhana (the elephant is big)
He iti te kutu (the kutu is small)
He paru tēnei (this is dirty)
He mā te kīhini (the kitchen is clean) 


Te Kakano

Learning how to say where things are.  

Kei roto = in
Kei waho = outside 
Kei runga = on 
Kei raro = under
