We have been fortunate to have received a large construction pieces of Aoteoroa. By placing them on the mat it was so awesome to see how the children interacted with them. They knew they were the shapes of where we live and confident to point and lie on top of the South Island, Te Waipounmau to show us.
However, we love how the children can think so creatively and seeing Chania interlocking the islands together and trying different ways by lifting it up to make the pieces fit was so ingenious.
And later in the morning they became the guitars for Macy and Alice to have a sing a long together.
Ka mau te wehi - That’s amazing! Kei te pai!
