Who can play Kaupapa? Do you have to be fluent?
Everyone can play! KAUPAPA is the board game for a bilingual Aotearoa.
"The game is so visually beautiful - our children are intrigued at the pictures and symbols and meanings from the box opening onwards! One of the the things that make this game is that it's so adaptable for very different levels of reo - we have children with almost zero reo through to children who are in fully bilingual kura and they can play together and not feel discouraged."
"Definitely something fresh. It is a package of joy, every where your eyes fall brings joy because it is beautifully and respectfully presented."
"An incredible resource to support our learners with their reo. I used this game with a group of gifted learners from ages 8-11 years, with reo between zero and fully fluent, together in one group!"
"It works for the extroverts, but introverts can enjoy the noisey game too. Win. Win."
"A totally fresh take. And so beautiful."
"As the group were playing, other students came over to watch and they started acting as helpers (viewing the cards and acting out meanings), so it ended up being collaborative and cooperative rather than competitive. The game just kept attracting more and more as we had fun exploring new and known words and relating them to other known words. Part of this group was one student who is fluent in te reo and we used the 'hard' version of the rules with her, which she appreciated. She ended up being a massive support for the non-fluent among the group, in a warmly supportive way."
