At the end of the session the pupils are expected to:
1. Introducing 'is' and 'are'
'is' and 'are' are both forms of the verb 'to be'
'is' is singular, 'are' is plural.
Choose the correct form depending on the subject of the sentence. If you're having trouble, make sure you know what the subject of the sentence really is.
The kids are waiting for the movie to start. -- the subject is 'kids' which is plural, so you use 'are'
The group of kids is waiting for the movie to start -- the subject is 'group' which is singular (you can have more than one group) so you use 'is'
This is tricky because a group of kids is more than one person, but it's still a singular subject.
If you're still having trouble, try re-writing the sentence without the modifiers to isolate the subject.
In our examples, this would be...The kids ARE waiting
2. Activity for kids: Board work
List of words to be identified whether 'is' or 'are'
A worksheet consisting of 'is' and 'Are' words will be given to the students for evaluation.
