So, today, I have the privilege of spending the day with Gemma and Anaru for Te Reo Manahua Māori. I am so excited to be able to embrace this opportunity and continue the momentum. I am anticipating challenge, discomfort and I am very excited.
My expectations are HUGE, of the course, of our kaiako, of our Te Reo Manahua colleagues but most especially, myself. I expect to be busy, busy, busy! I expect to be uncomfortable with my journey. I expect to embrace my mistakes. I expect to maintain a growth mindset! I expect to spent time in the pit of learning, but I anticipate a whole lot of support to assist me as I clamber out....
I am delighted to see that there are two challenges during the course. Great opportunities for us to really embrace our learning, accept challenges, and grow in my reo....
I am very grateful for the opportunity to maintain the momentum. I know myself well enough to know that I learn best by continuing, by facing and embracing challenges. Woohoo… maintaining the momentum….
WOW – what a day… so much new learning… this certainly is a step up and out of my comfort zone, but so well supported by Anaru and Gemma and fellow kaiako on the journey.
My highlights of the day:
· Being at the face to face;
· Meeting my colleagues for the journey;
· Hearing the reo;
· Patai answered and discussed;
· Using the podcast app to download the podcasts so I can listen to them anywhere;
· Seeing the new options in moodle for a more interactive, pick a path experience;
· The fun of the day – thank you Gemma and Anaru;
Now the real learning begins.
Module one is whanaungatanga… relationships…
I can’t wait to dive in and get fully amongst the new learning, the new opportunities.
The new tense markers:
Thanks to Anaru for sharing them in this wonderful graphic…. And with the actions to try and solidify my learning.
The new sentence structures today open up a world of possibilities.
I am especially looking forward to learning new whakatauki to bring into my learning journey and sharing these at sessions we run.
Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini
My success is not that of the individual, but that of many
