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

Ngā Whāriki Manaaki

We had so much fun at our haerenga to Ngā Whāriki Manaaki and the Margaret Mahy papatākaro.

A big mihi to our parent helpers!  It was awesome to share the day with you :)  And thank you to Debbie for telling us about the history and stories of these beautiful whāriki.



Te reo Māori Kaupapa mō wiki iwa



Poutama Reo: Te Puāwaitanga (Whaea Maria)

I tēnei wā kei te aro atu ngā māhuri o tēnei roopu ki ngā tūwāhi. Ia wiki whakawhanake ai rātou i ngā wete reo, te puna kupu me te mahi pānui. Hei āwhina i tāu tamaiti, pānui tahi; aromatawaingia ngā kupu hou, pātaitia rānei. Tirohia te ataata kua tāpirihia – I te whakataetae ngā ākonga i te Quizlet.

This week the ākonga of this roopu are working on locatives. They are beyond the roto (rō), waho, waenganui, muri, mua, runga, raro and are now onto the konei, konā, korā (kō), anei, anā, arā as well as other descriptive words for locations. Each week the ākonga are developing their grammar progressions, their pool of vocab and also reading ability. You can help your child by reading with them (they have reading books every week as well as http://eng.mataurangamaori.tki.org.nz/Rauemi-tautoko/Te-Reo-Maori/Te-Huinga-Raukura ); testing them on their new words (Quizlet and/or Te Reo Māori books) and questioning them about their mahi. Have a look at the video attached of the tamariki competing in Quizlet.


Poutama reo: Tipupunga (Matua Mike and Hakui Steph)

Mā wai e....  (who will ...)
māku            (for me to do)
māu              (for you to do)
māna            (for s/he to do)

The te reo work we covered today (Monday with Matua Mike) was how to ask - Who will (do something)? and give a range of replies.
examples:
Ma wai e āwhina? Who will help?
Mā wai au e āwhina? Who will help me?
Māku e āwhina. I will help.
Māku koe e āwhina. I will help you.
Māu e āwhina. You will help.
Māna e āwhina. He/she will help.
Mā Hēmi e āwhina. Hēmi will help.
We also acted out our version of "The Little Red Hen" with Sadie as Heihei (ka pai Sadie).

Poutama reo: Te Oreorenga (Whaea Hannah)

This week we are learning many different sentence structures based around asking questions.  
We are going to be looking at how to ask how many there are.  

To do this we use "e hia ngā (noun)" for objects and animals.  
To respond, if the answer is two or nine and in between you say "e (number) ngā (noun)."  If it is only one you would say "kotahi te (noun)."  If it is 10 or more you use "tekau ngā (noun)"

G9_large.jpg

Here are some we tried in class.  

E hia ngā panana?
E rua ngā panana.

E hia ngā karapa?
Tekau-mā-whitu ngā karapa.

E hia ngā pea?
E toru ngā pea. 


To ask how many people there are we use "tokohia ngā (tamariki/matua/tangata/etc.)?"
To respond we use the same rules as above with the numbers but with the preface of "toko" instead of "e".  

For example:
Tokohia ngā tamariki?
Toko whitu ngā tamariki.

Tokohia ngā pepe?
Kotahi te pepe.  (we use "te" in this if the answer is one because "te" indicates a singular object instead of "ngā")

Tokohia ngā matua tīpuna?
Toko tua ngā matua tīpuna. 


Poutama reo: Te Kakano (Whaea Cha)

We are working on house hold items this week.

Rehua Marae

I tērā Rāhina i haere mātou ki te marae o Rehua.  I haere a Tipu mātou ko Rea ko Ngā Kiwi (tau 0-1).  I tino pai te haerenga.  I ako mātou i ngā tukutuku me ngā poupou me ngā mahi toi o te marae hoki.  Ngā mihi nui ki a Matua Mikaere mō te kōrero - ka mau te wehi!

I tērā Rāmere i hanga mātou i ngā tukutuku mō te akomanga Tipu.  He tino pai te mahi.  Me titiro koutou ki ērā.  Kei runga ērā i te wāra kei Tipu.  Ngā mihi ki ngā tuakana mō tō koutou āwhi ki ngā teina!  Me pātai koe ki tōu tamaiti i ngā kaupapa o ērā tukutuku...

Last Monday we went to Rehua Marae.  Tipu, Rea, and Ngā Kiwi from mainstream went along (thank you to the Ngā Kiwi team for bringing us along!).  The trip was very good.  We learnt a lot about the tukutuku panels, the poupou carvings, and the structure and art of the marae.  A big thank you to Mike for your talk - we learnt heaps and it was great!  

Last Friday we recreated some of the tukutuku panels for Tipu.  You should have a look at them, they are on the wall in Tipu.  A big thank you to some of the tuakana that help our teina with their mahi.  You should ask you child about what the tukutuku panels represent - hopefully they can remember!

Māori kaupapa for Te Oreorenga rōpu

Kia ora whānau.  This week in Whaea Hannah's rōpu we are looking at learning how to ask what something is and how to respond.

"He aha tēnei?" means "what is this?".  Tēnei is the kupu for "this", and aha is the question word for "what".

To respond we replace the question word (aha) with the name of the thing.  For example...


He aha tēnei? (What is this?) 
He pōtae tēnei. (This is a hat)


Here is another example that we have learnt in class.
He aha tēnei? (What is this?)
He kūaha tēnei. (This is a door)

You can help your tamaiti at home learn this by using "he aha tēnei" around the house with many house hold items.  The aim is for our tamariki to kōrero Māori so the more encouragement they have from kura and home the better!
