    Thanks. I wrote something on frenchteacher.net some time ago on the same issue.

    If you go to the page on the above link you can access two TaskMagic files (if you have TM3) which provide access to a total of 40 interactive games and exercises, as well as lots of pdf worksheets (which anyone can access), all created based on an original text using the procedure outlined on the page itself.

    There's a new tutorial here:
    http://www.mdlsoft.co.uk/quickinput.htm
    which
    explains how easy it is to make exercises with loads of matching items
    in based on your existing vocab lists or online flashcard resources.
    Again, the key concept is: minimum work, maximum output
    (Each file has 20 or so interactive exercises based on the same list of matching lexical items.)

    On the following post you will find a variety of printable resources based on
    the poem "Déjeuner du matin" by Jacques Prévert
    These include activities
    based on the poem itself as well as on lexical items from the poem.
