This post provides some examples of how textivate can be used with a simple verb conjugation paradigm, rather than a full text. These examples use the French verb 'aller' (=to go) in thepresent tense.
1. Separate the pronouns and the parts of the verb:
2. Fill in the parts of the verb. (This was done by creating an "extra gap-fill" and selecting the verbs as the gaps) :
3. Sort the 9 parts of the verb into the correct order:
4. As above, but putting pronouns and verb parts in the correct order reading from top left to bottom right:
5. Fill in the vowels:
6. Fill in the consonants:
7. Fill in all of the text, with the initial letters provided:
8. Fill in all of the text, with only word shapes provided.
Now, I'm not saying you should necessarily do all of these - it's a matter of selecting activities that are appropriate for your class. The above work well with an interactive whiteboard, or as stimuli for written exercises, as well as for students to work on individually at their own computers.
Feedback welcomed, as ever.
