Some resources based on a short text about the origin of Valentine's day in French, taken from the MFL Sunderland newsletter from a couple of years ago at http://www.sunderlandschools.org/mfl-sunderland/resources/newsletter-ed-12.pdf
8 of the pdf files were printed from a TaskMagic3 Mix&Gap file, providing access to multiple interactive exercises for use with PCs or interactive whiteboard. See http://www.mdlsoft.co.uk/mixandgap.htm for details of the kinds of exercises available. The Mix&Gap file is also included (mtx3).
The other 2 were printed from a TaskMagic3 TextMatch files, with 22 interactive games and exercises. See http://www.mdlsoft.co.uk/textmatch.htm for details. The TextMatch file is also included (mdl3).
The 2 TaskMagic3 files (with access to nearly 40 games and exercises) and the worksheets (there are more available too) were made by taking the original text and following the procedure outlined at http://www.mdlsoft.co.uk/exploitingtexts.htm (plus a bit of editing of the TextMatch file), which shows you how to get loads of resources from a single text,to provide lots of practice, exposure and repetition of the same target material.
