Product Description
A fun resource for learning to read the first 350 high frequency Māori words.

Included:
♦ 350 coloured footprints with mud background
♦ 350 black/white footprints
♦ Blank templates (coloured and black/white)
♦ Teacher notes

Ideas for use:
♦ Place a track of footprints around the classroom. Students walk around the track, stomping on the footprints and reading the words (in a taniwha voice) as they go.
♦ Scatter the footprints on the floor. The teacher says a word. Which student can be the first to stomp on the correct word? (Be careful of little toes!)
♦ Print 2 sets and play ‘memory’. Place the cards face down. Students take turns at turning 2 cards over. If the words are the same, they keep the cards and have another turn. Who has the most pairs of cards at the end?
♦ Display the words around the classroom and go on a ‘taniwha hunt’. Who can find the word ‘haere’? Give your students a magnifying glass if you have some.
♦ Give the students a copy of the blank template (black and white). They can write a sight word in the footprint and decorate it. Perhaps you could staple a few together and make a little booklet.
♦ Create a ‘sentence stomp’. Make a sentence with the words and stomp it!

4 footprints per A4 size page. Enlarge to A3 if you want larger footprints.
Blank templates are provided for you to add words if necessary.

The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’.

The 350 words used in this resource are sourced from a list on TKI called ‘1000 frequent words of Māori – in frequency order’. Permission has been granted. (http://tereomaori.tki.org.nz/Teacher-tools/Te-Whakaipurangi-Rauemi/High-frequency-word-lists)
