This French grammar worksheet is a great way for students to practice conjugating être verbs in the passé composé past tense. The worksheet is designed around the Dr. Mrs. VanderTrampp acronym for verbs that use "être," instead of "avoir," as an auxiliary/helping verb in the passé composé.
Part one reminds students of the basics of conjugating verbs in the passé composé, including practice with the present tense forms of être. Part two gives students practice forming the past participles of les verbes qui sont conjugués avec être au passé composé.
In part three, students fill in the blanks with the correct passé composé forms of verbs conjugated with être. They will then translate past tense English sentences into French using the passé composé of verbs conjugated with être.
Finally in part four, students will fill in the blanks with the correct passé composé forms of various verbs, identifying which verbs should be conjugated with "avoir" and which verbs should be conjugated with "être" in the passé composé.
Note: For users of the Bon Voyage level 1 textbook, this corresponds very well with Chapter 11 Structure. It also works well with Chapter 8 of Bien Dit level 1. In fact, it is a Word document that can easily be edited and adapted to any French textbook, curriculum, or lesson on Dr.Mrs.VanderTrampp verbs conjugated with être in the passé composé.
