2 DRMRSVANDERTRAMPP Anagrams: See how many words or phrases you can make out of the letters above (you don’t need to use all the letters) Doodle: If you separate the words above, you’ll notice that it says “Dr Mrs Vandertrampp.” How do you picture this couple looking? Draw a quick sketch of Dr. and Mrs. Vandertrampp.

3 What is it really? It’s actually an acronym, which represents the 17 verbs that use être as a helping verb. The verbs are: devenir- to become, revenir- to come back, mourir- to die, retourner- to return, sortir- to go out, venir- to come, arriver- to arrive (to happen), naître- to be born, descendre-to descend, entrer- to enter, rentrer- to return, tomber- to fall, rester- to stay, to remain, aller- to go, monter-to go up, partir- to leave, passer-to pass by

4 What makes etre verbs different?
Instead of using avoir as a helping verb, you are going to use être. You still need to conjugate it to agree with the subject. Remember: Je suis Nous sommes Tu es Vous êtes Il, elle, on est ils, elles sont You’ll still have your subject, then your conjugated helping verb, then a past participle Unlike with avoir, the participle will change, it needs an ending to agree with the subject in gender and number

5 Examples Passé Composé with Avoir (subject, helping verb, participle)
J’ai visité Paris. I visited Paris. Nous avons mangé le petit- déjeuner ce matin. We ate breakfast this morning. Passé Composé with Etre (subject, helping verb, participle) Nous sommes allés à la plage. We went to the beach. Napoleon est né le 15 aout, Napoleon was born August 15, 1769. Elle est arrivée à Paris. She arrived at Paris. Elles sont arrivées à Marseille. They arrived at Marseille.

6 Past Participles Like with avoir, the past participles of verbs that end in –er are going to change to é, then add endings for feminine or plural agreement Verbs that end in –re change to u for the participle, then agree Ir verbs change to –i for the participle, then agree Some of the past participles with être are irregular: Mourir- mort devenir- devenu Naître- né venir- venu Revenir- revenu

7 Practice Je au match de foot. (aller) Tu à la maison. (rentrer)
Elle à 8h30. (partir) Nous dans les escaliers. (tomber) Vous au stade. (arriver) Elles de Paris hier. (venir)

8 Answers Je suis allé au match de foot. Tu es rentré à la maison.
Elle est partie à 8h30. Nous sommes tombés dans les escaliers. Vous êtes arrivés au stade. Elles sont venues de Paris hier.

9 How do I remember those verbs again?
Revenir, mourir, …?

10 Another way to remember is the “house of être”- picturing the activities being performed in a house

11 Some creative versions


13 What could you come up with?
Think for minute about the different versions you could come up with: a haunted house of être, a castle of être, a sunken ship of être, a jungle of être, farm of être, etc In your writing journal, you are going to sketch your own version, and label it with the verbs (A little later, with a group, you are going to make a poster to display with the être verbs)
