Are you saying that that is the incorrect way to conjugate it?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate dormir and other -mir verbs in Le Présent (present tense)"

Hi Marie, the conjugation given in the lesson is correct. Was that your question?
22 February 2018
I was confused by seeing "rendors" and "endort" in the examples, but not in the original conjugation. I would have explain my question better, but it didn't like the length of my question at first.
So endormir is to fall asleep, and rendormir is to fall back to sleep?

Yes, correct: "endormir" is to fall asleep and "rendormir" is to fall back to sleep.
They all follow the same pattern of conjugation as their root verb: dormir:
je dors -- je m'endors.tu dors -- tu t'endors.il dort -- il s'endort.
.... and so on. They share the same endings with "dormir".

Just a correction-
'S'endormir' is to fall asleep and 'Se rendormir' is to fall back to sleep as they are both reflexive verbs.
