What educators are saying

This was a great resource to use in person and when we had to go virtual for a few days, students were able to do this too using this resource.
This resource a way for my students to think and reflect about goals after leaving the previous semester behind. It works great as a substitute day when you cannot be in the classroom. :) Thank you!


New Year's Goal-setting activity & Reading!

About this resource

No te metas con mis metas is a New Year goal-setting activity for level 2 or beyond. In addition to providing step-by-step goal-writing prompts, students will learn about the importance of making goals with a good dose of interesting compelling input and graphics to keep them engaged. 

What’s included in this resource? 

1. Article #1: No te metas con mis metas is a short reading about the origin of the expression “Borrón y cuenta nueva”, and its relevance to the New Year.  The terms means to start afresh, and is a great way to reconceptualize new beginnings. Students are encouraged to learn from previous mistakes and start anew. The article also delves into why people set goals and provides important advice from experts about making S.M.A.R.T goals, which they’ll have a chance to create towards the end of the activity!

2. Las metas inteligentes vignettes provide students with several descriptions of other students who are trying to set goals for the New Year. However, your students’ tasks will be to read and decide which goals are  metas inteligentes and which ones need improvement. 

3.Las metas inteligentes modeling: these vignettes are examples of what S.M.A.R.T goals look like, giving students ample practice prior to writing their own goals. 

4. Word cloud- students choose several words that they want to define their New Year and write the English and Spanish versions. They can also share with their peers. 

5. Goal-setting activity: students write three types of goals and list the action steps thus applying steps in the article. They even write a goal for Spanish class!

6. Comprehension questions are in English and Spanish. 

Editable version available! 

The article is written in the present tense with only “tenían” in the past tense. This word is glossed on the page and in the glossary. There is a glossary included.
