He Pānui Whakaahua Pāngarau

He Pānui Whakaahua Pāngarau is a set of 5 A2 coloured pāngarau wall posters exemplifying the use of different mental number strategies within common everyday contexts. They are targeted for children at stages 5 and 6 of the Number Framework. The posters can be displayed in classrooms and easily referred to by students and teachers as part of their pāngarau programme as the need arises. The posters aim to provide examples for the verbalising of part-whole number strategies in te reo Māori. Teachers notes are printed on the back of each poster.

The individual posters are:
