Using “there is” or “there are” can be difficult for ESL students, especially if the equivalent structure in their native language is different. These worksheets and dominoes will help them practice using “there is”, “there are”.

I need help with … ?

This resource is part of the “I need help…” BUNDLE : worksheets and activities that can be used as additional activities or for your fast finishers. They deal with grammar, syntax, pronunciation… For each topic, you will get exercises and games. 

There is - There are

Students will use “there + be” in sentences in the affirmative, negative and interrogative forms.

A reminder of how to use “there + be” properly is at the top of the worksheets. It is followed by 2 exercises: 

  • In the first one, students will fill in 8 sentences using there is or there are. 
  • In the second one, they will observe the picture of a bedroom, complete the 11 questions and answer. Example:  “______ a desk? ___, _______.” => “Is there a desk ? Yes, there is.”
    “How many drawers __________ ? ________” => ““How many drawers are there ? There are 4 drawers.”

The picture is on the worksheet, it is also included as  a png file that you can project. 

The second activity is a game of dominoes. It’s a set of 35 pieces, using 8 sentences and the corresponding illustrations. Dominoes are in color, you can choose to print them with or without a background.

The regular rules of dominoes apply. This game will help your students use “there is”, “there are” in a fun way. They usually really LOVE dominoes.

  • the worksheets and answer key in a pdf file
