Plan Ahead: Weekly Featured Messages with Lesson Plans

Elementary


Here's what you can expect through February 2018.

You can choose to implement the Project Wisdom supplemental message with lessons plans in several ways. You can use them as recommended in the Weekly or Monthly Themes or you can implement them as they are featured each week (during the school year) in the Just For You email deployment to educators who are registered on our Website.

These materials include broadcast messages dealing with current or calendar events, or pressing issues. Also included are correlating lesson plans with discussion generators and follow-up activities for all grade levels.

If you are planning to use the weekly or monthly themes, it's important to know that because this content addresses many calendar events, these topics may or may not fit within the theme you choose for any particular week. These tools work really well for weekly advisory, character education, life skills, or enrichment classes.

"The program has been a great way to build a positive school climate and to begin to help students understand that they are responsible for their choices and the outcomes of these choices, both positive and negative."

Amy, Prevention Intervention Specialist - California

  • Staying on Task

    How many times have you said, "Let's get back to work" or "Pay attention, please." Learning to pay attention can be a difficult skill to learn for some kids. The best place to start is to explore classroom distractions, how to block them, and how to create a "question safe environment."
    Key Idea: The importance of learning to focus and pay attention
    Character Traits: Self-responsibility - Self-control – Discipline

  • In Pursuit of Integrity

    Choosing to live a life of integrity means that we must be honest with ourselves and others. We must reflect on our choices and decide what ethical principles are most important to us and then make the effort to live by those principles. Students will consider the meaning of integrity and how it relates to being an honest and respectful person.
    Key Idea: Living a life of integrity - Being an honest and trustworthy person
    Character Traits: Integrity - Honesty - Respect
