Great for a wall display. They can also be used as a writing task – how many kiwi sayings can you include in a piece of writing? For example:

Nek minnit the bell goes and your students leave the classroom. Sitting on your desk are some sweet as kiwi sayings that you need to display on the wall. Everything is good as gold but you know you need to rattle your dags cause you were asked to bring a plate for morning tea. The food is always mean as and you often leave chock-a-block so you work hard out for the next 5 minutes. She’ll be right. A colleague comes in to take a squiz and she thinks it looks tu meke. She takes a tiki tour around your room to suss it out and repeatedly says “Chur”. You take your time because you don’t want the display to look rough as guts. Just when you think you’re home and hosed, you find 4 more speech bubbles that were hiding under your planning book. Aw, gutted. You’re about to throw a wobbly but you remind yourself that everything is a box of fluffies. You don’t want the display to look half pie so you give it heaps. It looks wicked bro. Your students are going to think it's flash as. Time to head to the staff room. You take a seat next to your cuz who tells you a hard case joke. She’s a bit of a dag. You tell her “don’t be an egg” as you reach for a pineapple lump. You’re a bit knackered after working so hard all morning, but everything is hunky dory. No worries!

If I have missed any sayings that you think should be included, please email me and I’ll happily include them (it’s free to download a resource again after purchasing).
