Through out the day you will constantly be supervising the children and monitoring how they are health wise. I often would find myself talking to children and asking them how are you feeling today? Not always getting a reply but the older children would generally answer okay, good. I feel tired or I’m sad what ever it may be. Today I am going to teach you a few simple sentences to ask someone how they are feeling and a few answers also. I hope that this will help in your journey today.
E pēhea koe? or Kei te pēhea koe? – How are you?
Question: E pēhea koe? to one person
Answer: E …………………… ahau.
Or you can use this question with this answer.
Question: Kei te pēhea koe?
Answer: Kei te ……………………… ahau.
Here are some describing words to help you fill in the gaps.
E pēhea koe? E pai ahau. pai – good
E pēhea koe? E makariri ahau. makariri – cold
E pēhea Koe? E ngenge ahau. ngenge – tired
E pēhea koe? E harikoa ahau. harikoa – happy
E pēhea koe? E hiakai ahau. hiakai – hungry
This is a good book I found that you may be helpful for you and the children.
