Here are two penguin themed activities to use when teaching the present-tense verbs is and are.
The first activity includes sentence strips with blanks. The students will write is or are on the recording sheet.
The second activity includes two stories (one basic level and one challenge level). The stories highlight the words is and are. There are also copies of the stories with blanks for the students to fill in as they are rereading the story, along with a couple comprehension questions.
