Te Kupu o Te Wiki – Mamae (sore)

Kia ora. To encourage the use of Te Reo Māori we are publishing weekly kupu (words) and phrases that can be used with children.

Whakataukī

He manako te koura i kore ai.
There are no crayfish as you set your heart on them.

This is similar to not putting all your eggs in one basket. You could also consider this as “don’t count your chickens before they are hatched”.

Kīwaha (idiom)

E mea ana koe
You bet

Kupu (word)

mamae
sore

Kei te mamae tō puku?
Is your tummy sore?

Whāngahia te Reo
