Common Core Curriculum alignment
Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally.
Use verbs to convey a sense of past, present, and future (e.g., Yesterday I walked home; Today I walk home; Tomorrow I will walk home).
Form and use the simple (e.g., I walked; I walk; I will walk) verb tenses.
Form and use the perfect (e.g., I had walked; I have walked; I will have walked) verb tenses.
