I have spent time co-constructing lessons in valuing TE REO and TI KANGA within the classroom. This is in a bid to encourage Akonga to VAULE the importance of this in their lives as Kiwi's. I as a Samoan, value the importance culture and language.
Alongside Co-Teacher N, I have created several purposeful lessons for Akonga to use Te Reo in context. We've applied these with success. Our Akonga enjoy learning about Te Reo, which is evidence of success.
