Kei te pēhea koe? Tell me how you really feel

Whaea Jacqs has shared with Hub 9 learners how to give many responses to the question: Kei te pēhea koe? (How are you?) Most of us admit we just say ka pai (good), or tino pai (very good). Now we have more phrases to explain how we are really feeling. Using our drawn faces below can you work out the following emotions and then how to respond in Te Reo? Happy, angry, sad, silly, confused, tired, frightened. We have had a great time challenging ourselves with these new phrases in Te Reo. Maybe you could challenge yourself today?
