Be- Verbs (Am, Is, Are, Was, Were) Verbs show an action or state of being. Be- verbs indicate a state of being. They can be a linking verb or a helping verb. Linking verbs do not describe an action. They give information about the subject of the sentence. A helping verb helps the main verb in the sentence. Am, is, are, was, and were are be- verbs. The verb is is used with singular subject. The verb are is used with plural subject. Pronoun I is always used with am. You can be singular or plural and always used with are. Am, is, and are are used in the present tense. Was and were are their past tense form. Examples: 1. I am in grade three now. 2. I was in grade two last year. 3. Allan is my classmate this year. 4. Nikki and Paul are my friends. 5. They were also my friend last year. You may now start answering the activities below. Goodluck! Activity 1: Be Ready! Directions: Underline the correct be- verb in each sentence. 1.
