Time openers 


Time openers are words that help us to understand when something is happening. Words such as first, then, next, after and finally are all time openers. We usually use them at the beginning of an instruction.

For example, 


put the toothpaste on the brush before brushing your teeth. 





Finally eat the delicious cupcake! 




Let's find the time openers together in the video below!
