'There is/There are' are used to state the existence or presence of something or someone.
Here are some examples:
There's a clock on the wall.
There are six desks in the classroom.
There are four students in the class.
There are two whiteboards in the classroom.
Is there a ___________ in the classroom?
Yes, there is.
No, there isn't.
Are there ___________(s) in the classroom?
Yes, there are.
No, there aren't.
Have your students identify all the objects in the classroom. Write them down on the whiteboard. After that, make complete sentences using there is/there are. Then, pair the students up and have them practice the above interrogative sentence patterns (Is there/Are there...?) using the classroom objects which they have just identified.
