February 9, 2021 @ 6:00 pm$180.00
Ukulele and Waiata Workshops for Beginners
To increase teachers repertoire of waiata, kupu/words and basic kiwaha/phrases that enhance children’s identity, belonging and wellbeing.
Presented by Maria Sydney in West Auckland.
Only $180.00pp for the series of 3 workshops!
Having a particularly strong interest and passion for te reo Māori herself, Maria will weave te reo Māori and matauranga Māori (i.e karakia, waiata and ideas to support bicultural practice) throughout the workshops and be available for support with pronunciation and tips as well.
A safe, relaxed and fun learning space will be provided to ensure that all akonga have ample time and support throughout the workshops where needed.
Waiata can have deep symbolic meaning and can be used to reflect whakapapa, purakau/ stories, identity and cultural values.
Learning (outcomes) for tamariki:
Waiata are fun for tamariki and enhances mana, creativity, language acquisition, participation and so much more!
Supports awareness of sounds, words, rhythm and rhyme
Ability to be creative and expressive through learning and singing waiata
Using actions that accompany waiata can help with co-ordination skills too.
The use of te reo and tikanga Māori support tamariki to connect with their identity as Māori and strengthens their sense of belonging and wellbeing.

With respect and aroha, Maria is available to come in to your service and work alongside kaiako and tamariki (where appropriate) to offer extra support for centres using a role modelling and tuakana/teina approach. I can provide kaiako with inspiration of how to best support te reo Māori and tikanga Māori in their service including support with values in practice i.e Aroha, Whanaungatanga, Manaakitanga and much more to enhance teachers competence and understanding of te ao Māori. As well as waiata sessions and karakia that is connected to every day learning and teaching.
