    How do you explain the difference between "is" and "has"

    This is used in the context of an elementary class.

    Re: How do you explain the difference between "is" and "has"

    Is is about being. Has is about possessing.

    He is a dog. - In Black English Vernacular: He be a dog.

    He has a dog. - He owns a dog.

    When is and has are used with other verbs, their qualities change somewhat: He was eating. He has eaten. But that's another discussion. Or is that what your question about?
