Ngā Kete Kōrero Framework
The Māori classroom collection for early childhood, kōhanga reo and early primary schooling years (Year 0-2) has been leveled using the Ngā Kete Kōrero Framework. The levels were especially developed to assist children learning to read in Māori, also to help develop Māori language literacy. The books have been organised into increasing levels of difficulty which correspond to reading stages. These are Harakeke, Kiekie, Pingao and Miro.
