For a dictocomp, you could read out a simple recipe in Māori, twice. During the first reading, the students just listen. During your second reading, pause between the sentences so that they can jot down rough notes, in English or Māori, about key content. The students then work in small groups and use their notes to list the key ingredients and the main steps.

Alternatively, you could give the students a recipe to read, then remove it and get them to reconstruct it.

In such a dictocomp, you could focus on the word endings we use in instructions, for example:
