Te reo Māori in English-medium schools
6.3 Communicate about immediate plans, hopes, wishes, and intentions.
At the end of this lesson, students can:
Whakarongo - Listening: Make use of context and familiar language to understand instructions and information in formal and informal contexts.
Tuhituhi - Writing: Write information on familiar topics with past, present, and future time.
Kōrero - Speaking: Give short talks in familiar contexts on familiar topics that relate to the past and present.
Explain to the students that you will read a text three times (see Resource sheet 6A) while they listen. Read the text at a steady speed.
Ask students to ‘rebuild’ the text in pairs. When the students have finished, ask each pair to read out their complete sentences.
Ask the other students to listen and, if anything is missing, ask them to make corrections.
If the students are having difficulty, write extra words as prompts on the board.
A close task could be made from the same text – see Resource sheet 6B.
