Te Reo Māori – Te Ataarangi Method – L11

If you are learning Te Reo Māori using the Te Ataarangi Method and cusininaire rods, I hope that these flashcards will help you consolidate what you are learning in class.

Lesson 11 – Numbering things, combining colours, taking things away, leaving them, holding on to them, keeping them and giving them.

21 Ways to Use Cuisenaire Rods

Please note that my flashcard plugin doesn’t recognize macrons (the tūhoto) so I’ve adopted the old way of doubling the vowel where a macron would normally be present.  This just means that you hold that syllable for longer but it doesn’t change the sound of the vowel at all, just the length.

Just tap the flashcards to flip them:)
