Introduction to the units

Ka Mau te Wehi! is based on levels 1 and 2 of the draft Te Reo Māori in the New Zealand Curriculum 2007. The resource contains 20 units of work, each having a distinct theme and providing fun opportunities to learn and practise new language. The units in this section follow the unit content in the print material of Ka Mau te Wehi! Each unit lists relevant curriculum achievement objectives, learning intentions and success criteria.

The units are made up of a number of activities based on the video clips, which support and guide the teacher to work with his/her class. Transcripts for each video scenario in Māori, with English translation, have been provided on the video pages, plus PDFs, should you wish to print these. The transcripts of the videos in Māori use the colloquial language of everyday conversation. The English translations are an attempt to give the sense of the conversations and are therefore also colloquial, not literal translations. Each activity has hyperlinks to the video clips, worksheets, waiata lyrics and translations, and transcripts of video. Simply click on the link to view the video clips, read the transcripts or worksheets. Some worksheets have been produced as Word documents should you wish to adapt them for your class. The students will need an exercise book for notes and activities. This is referred to as their Wehi book.

The 20 units in Ka Mau te Wehi! are:
