Ngā whetū o Matariki

Kia ora,

Matariki is a special time of the year in Aotearoa, celebrated in many different ways around the country.

I have created this Keynote to support my learners to discover what each star in the Matariki cluster represents. By reading the content to them, I am supporting all levels of Reo and enabling every child to access the learning within a rūmaki setting. 

I love using the drawing tools in Tayasui Sketches school as a creative way to represent what they have learnt. My children really enjoyed drawing an abstract picture showing what each star means - choosing the best colours and shapes allowed them to express their understanding in a fun and creative way.

Here is the Keynote I used for this project, you can download and use as it is or edit / feel free to record your own voice.

If you go to the Everyone Can Create drawing book - you can f  ind out more ways to use Tayasui Sketches School. h

Ngā Mihi for sharing Taylaua! What an awesome resource. My kura is going to use this with our Year 1s and I'm sure they will really enjoy learning more about Matariki and designing their own unique whetū on Tayasui Sketches.
