Boost your use of te reo Māori

  • Look at Kotahi Mano Kaika, a Ngāi Tahu initiative, where children can make online, personalised Māori Language books.
  • Choose a phrase, whakataukī and/or kīwaha of the week each week. Encourage students to explore their meaning, find examples, and share their learning at home.
  • Use the iPad/iPhone app Sock Puppets to record conversations in te reo Māori and share them with your community on the school website or class blog.
  • Find interactive te reo Māori websites on wickED.
  • Tellagami is a mobile app (ios and Android) that lets you create and share a quick animation. Tellagami is a great way for students to share their mahi in a non-threatening way and hear themselves speaking te reo Māori.
  • Why not watch an episode of Māori Spongebob Squarepants? See if students can retell the story using some key phrases.
  • Download the Kura App to find a range of games modules that allow users to improve their knowledge and understanding of the Māori language. Users are timed and can pit their skills against others via a scoreboard. To download the app for android, go to: To download the app for Apple, go to the iTunes Store and search "Kura".
