Sing After Me
A video that shows one way to help families practice patience and show affection.
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.
