Rhyming Song-Pleasingly Patient    (Tune: “Are You Sleeping?”)

I am patient.

I am patient.

Watch me wait.

Watch me wait. One, two, three, four, five,

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten.

I can wait.

I am great!


Bear Can’t Wait by Karma Wilson (Margaret K. McElderry Books)


Rhyming Song- I Can Be Patient Song by Sesame Street

I can be patient




Learning to be patient is not easy to do

It’s really hard to wait for things

And frustrating, too.


There are tricks to being patient

Find something else to do

It makes the time go faster

And way more fun for you!


I can be patient




It’s hard to be patient, oh, yeah

It takes practice

It takes time

But if you just keep busy

Then you will do just fiiine!


The VERY Impatient Caterpillar by Ross Burach (Scholastic Press)


Patience Poem by Georgeta Panisoara

Do you know Tritchy the caterpillar?

She cried because…She wasn’t so pretty

But time passed on …As it went by she became

a wonderful  butterfly


Here’s why you ..want time to pass by quicker

you want to be playing sooner

you want to grow up much faster

But patience is what…You must master


If you have patience

You will learn

To calm yourself and wait your turn

Step by step

You will succeed

Patience is …The thing you need.
