Before Viewing: Explain to children that sometimes we need to practice patience—we have to wait to do or get things we want. Julia and her family came up with a way to make waiting more fun. Together, watch this video to see how they practice patience together. 

During Viewing: Pause if your child has questions, and talk together about what you’re seeing. Ask: 

  • When have you needed to be patient? 
  • What might help make waiting easier or more fun? 

After Viewing: Brainstorm ways to make waiting easier, such as playing I Spy, counting, telling a story, or singing a song like Julia’s family. 

Use this printable to learn the words and sing along with Julia and her family.
