Learn to count in Te Reo Maori

We have had Arvay come to Manaia Kindergarten from the Northland Kindergarten Association to support us in our tikanga and te reo. She has taught us all a new song to help us learn our numbers in Maori. Ask your children if they remember it - tahi, rua, toru matimat...

We were unable to find a link to this song to support the children's learning from home, however we have found a youtube video to learn to count in Maori. Play and learn together.

IMPORTANT NOTE: At the end of this youtube video there will be links to other videos. We have no control where those links will take you and advise caution and parental supervision if following those links.

Loved the clips related to Te Reo! My first time to see examples like this, must be looking in the wrong places eh! Tumeke koutou!

Thanks Kea. Manaia has a scholarship to increase knowledge of tikanga and use of Te Reo in our community. We are hoping you and your kindergarten community can help us in this journey. May be good to skype early in the year.
Hope you have had good holidays.
