Te Reo Māori – Te Ataarangi Method L4 – kei te taha o, kei roto, waenganui

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 4 – waenganui (in the middle, in between), kei roto (in), kei te taha o (next to)

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.
