Te reo Māori in English-medium schools
6.1 Give and follow instructions.
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.
Hand out a copy of Teachers’ notes 1: Whakarongo and Kupu taka: Kia kama to each student.
As you read the sentences from Teachers’ notes 2: Ngā rerenga kōrero, ask the students to choose the illustration that relates to what is being said. Encourage the students to use Kupu taka: Kia kama as needed.
Use one tense or a combination of tenses as desired:
|Kei te||is, am, are|
|Kei te; ka||is going to, am going to, are going to; will|
Use other tense markers to begin sentences for more proficient students.
The students could be given the sentences with the illustrations as a reading activity.
Have the students make up their own sentences and take turns reading them aloud while the other students identify the illustrations being described.
