Step 1) You take off your clothes.
Step 2) You step into the shower.
Step 3) You turn on the water and step under it.
Step 4) You stand under the water and clean your body and hair with soap and shampoo.
Step 5) You turn off the water, step out of the shower, and dry yourself off with a towel.

A sequence marker connects each step...1 through 5.

Step 1) FIRST you take off your clothes.
Step 2) THEN you step into the shower.
Step 3) NEXT, you turn on the water and step under it.
Step 4) WHILE you are standing under the water you clean your body and hair with soap and shampoo.
Step 5) AFTERWARDS, you turn off the water, step out of the shower, and dry yourself off with a towel.
