Celebrating Waitangi Day

Te Wairua o Waitangi by Sharon Holt  (Te Reo Singalong Books)

Who will honour the treaty?
Who will honour the treaty?
You will, I will, they will, we all will.

Sharon Holt and her team have produced another much-needed book for the classroom.  This story is all about honouring the spirit of Waitangi Day, as well as being hosts, reviving the language, protecting the wildlife and land.  At the back of the book is a CD with the Waitangi Day song. Teachers can also find guitar chords, an English translation, follow up ideas for the book and honouring Waitangi Day, plus information about the Treaty. I can imagine many teachers will want this in their classroom, as it is not only a book that can be used in reading and language subjects, but also a unit for social studies and learning te reo Maori.  An excellent resource!

Buy direct from The Writing Bug: or from your nearest Children's Bookshop.

You can listen to the song and buy it here.
