Ton Christ est juif (French resources based on a short poem)

I was reminded of this poem today when I followed a link from @MarieFrance on Twitter to this post on her blog: (which also has a link to a previous lesson / blog post with great ideas for teaching nationality, possessive adjectives and adjectival agreement, as well as a bit of citizenship...)

Anyway, as well as the poem and the link to the previous resources, there was also a link to a TaskMagic2 Text Match file. This really brought home to me a major improvement in TaskMagic3 compared with previous versions: in earlier versions of TaskMagic, any text that you put into Mix&Gap would be converted into one block of text, so it wasn't really possible to make exercises based on formatted text such as letters, recipes, songs, poems etc. TaskMagic3 makes it possible to create all sorts of interactive and printed resources based on these kinds of texts, as you'll see from the resources posted here.

French recipe resources (ratatouille)

Here are some resources that I made based on a recipe sent to the mflresources group earlier this year. (If you don't know this group, it really is worth joining - there are over 4000 members and lots of sharing of ideas and resources for language teachers.)

The resources are based on a recipe in French for ratatouille. (The same idea can be applied to any recipe, letter, poem, song, etc.)

There are 8 pdf files in all, all printed using dopdf -
