  • Before moving on to Chapter 5, reflect upon what you can do with the language. Check off all of the things on the list below that you can do.

    For any actions you cannot yet do, review the topic and seek out additional resources such as tutoring, extra help from your instructor, online materials, etc.

    After completing this chapter, I can:

     Discuss places where people go for different activities, products, and services

     Express actions that will happen in the near future

     Use large numbers

     Express my likes and dislikes

     Describe my family

     Express possession

     Articulate my thoughts and ideas using stem-changing verbs

    ¡A reflexionar sobre los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 1. As we are working to be our best language learners, we need to regularly check in on our progress toward our goals. Use the questions below to reflect upon the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the chapter.

    My two short term goals were:

    1. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    2. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    My one long-term goal was:

    3. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    What do you currently feel is your biggest challenge with Spanish? What might you do to work on this? If it’s not on your goals list already, should it be?

    ¡A revisar los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 2. Before moving on to the next chapter, take a moment to update your goals and/or action plans. It is okay to keep goals that you set for yourself previously if you are still working toward them.

    My two short term goals with action plans:

    1. _______________________________________________________________________________

    2. _______________________________________________________________________________
