Help your tamariki to korero Māori.
Like many of us, we would love to teach our little ones how to speak our beautiful native language of New Zealand. We have put together some books, flash cards and other tools to help your Whanau learn the Māori language.
Kuwi & Friends Māori Picture Dictionary
The Kuwi and Friends Māori Picture Dictionary (He Papakupu Whakaahua) is a fun, easy-to-use resource for those wanting to discover, learn and use everyday words in te reo Māori (native language of New Zealand).
The illustrations are designed to help with comprehension, particularly for younger learners. Visual cues can assist with retention of language, to recall spoken and written words.
My First Words in Māori
My First Words in Māori equips your whanau with the first words you need to speak te reo at home together. With lively pictures labelled in Māori and English, each page introduces the concepts and words children use as they first begin to talk, get to know people and explore the world around them.
Kuwi Magnetic Māori Feelings And States
These handy magnets can be stuck straight onto whiteboards as well as the fridge making them perfect for a useful daily resource.
Each pack shows the name of the emotion and the corresponding facial image – both with the the Māori and English translation written alongside.
My First Te Reo Māori Picture Dictionary
100 everyday Māori words all kiwi kids should know. Learn to speak Māori with simplistic eye catching imagery your baby will love.
For every book sold, a portion of the profits will be donated to a local Māori organisation or kōhanga reo.
