Tamaki Int. - Learn to Speak Maori 12

One of the things that we get asked frequently at this site is about the posts, and in particular from teachers about the rationale behind them. I think at this point its very important to refer to our lead site which the Manaiakalani site. Here you can find copies of the literacy cycle that our students follow and which underpins nearly every piece of student work that we post. Hopefully this will help some of you who wonder about the process that we go through.

For this lesson is colours in Maori, again the students will say each of the words that are in the video and they will also appear on screen. We've also got a cameo at the end of the video from Moli and Lelani when Learn to Speak Fijian 4 took a detour into some strange territory!
The colours that are addressed in this video are:
  • Kakariki - Green
  • Whero - Red
  • Kowhai - Yellow
  • Mawhero - Pink
  • Pango - Black
  • Ma - White
Finally we just had our 10,000 view of teachertube material! Well done Room Six!

Well you certainly had to watch that one right through to get the treat at the end :) Sort of, an English lesson, thrown in by Fijians, at the end of the Maori lesson.... hmmmm
You guys who speak lots of languages are VERY clever!

I'd describe it as freestyle Fijian rap mixed with English alliteration. I know it probably doesn't fix within the framework strictly speaking but it needed to be published! I think.
