Tuputupu - Grow

Tuputupu is a fun, activity-based workbook created as part of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori which uses te Reo and Whare Tapa Whā as a foundation for tamariki to understand and care for their hauora.

Tuputupu - the workbook!

To make things easy we have developed two options of the Tuputupu workbook:

  • Portrait style - be sure to download it to print it.
  • Landscape style- which should make things easier for Seesaw! And be sure to download it for printing.

Tuputupu ideas - no matter what the level!

In the classroom:

  • Page 5 - Take this outside and physically create the continuum. Once tamariki have created the continuum kōrero about how they might support each other.
  • Page 14 - Ask tamariki in groups, to come up with their own game, or moves! They could then teach their peers - this is a good Zoom/Whereby/Google Meets option too.

For individual learning:

  • Page 8 - Ask tamariki to think of something they really want to learn to say in te Reo. Maybe their catch phrase, or something that would be useful at home or when playing sport?
  • Page 10 - It’s a word find! Who doesn’t love a word find?

Using Zoom, Whereby or Google Meets:

  • Page 6 - After the introduction to the journey of te Reo, you could use the Whakaaro as a kōrero or inquiry topic for tamariki to work through. This could be done in breakout room groups and then tamariki feedback their ideas.
  • Page 13 - A great way to kōrero about the emotions we might be feeling while in bubble time. Ask tarmariki to move through the hand motions with you. Be sure to bring this learning back to the classroom too.

Via home learning and Seesaw, or other shared online platforms:

  • Page 4 - Use this as a Seesaw slide and ask the question (on the last bubble): How will you support your whānau to use te Reo each day?
  • Page 25 - Ask tamariki to take a photo while they're being mindful - ask that they only take a maximum of 2 photos and explain why they chose those 2 particular, things and moments...

Adopting a hauora growth mindset with Whare Tapa Whā!

Here's some additional slides or Seesaw activities to encourage tamariki to develop a growth mindset around their overall hauora using Tuputupu and the Whare Tapa Whā model.
