A Story of Bees - Is, Am, Are | Looking for Friends in a Forest
In a family, there were three-member bees named “is”, “am”, and “are.” One day, the three were sad, as these siblings were bored and were looking for some company and they did not find any, as it was a winter season and everyone was at home.
So, what “is, am, are” did? Well, father and mother named “was” and “were, respectively” went on to call some more bees to join their kids.
Do you know what happened next? Well, three more bees named “He, She, Is, It, We They” joined the company of “is, am, are.” So, interesting isn’t it?
Seeing “She, He, It, Is, We, They” going to meet “is, am, are”, Are wanted to be friends with “We, and They.”
Then we noticed that “Am” was a very soft-hearted and shy bee, so “Am” became friends with “I”.
Father “Was” and Mother “Were” were blessed to see their kids “is, am, are” happy. They decided to have friends too!
While searching for friends, Father “was” became friends with “He, She, It”. However, Mother “were” became friends with “we and they.”
So, the above story of friendship between bees shows how Verbs “is, am, are, we, they, was, were, he, she, it, is” are used in an English sentence.
