Series 1 Elementary Level
These journals foster purposeful exploration and reflection. Below you will find 36 journal pages that correspond to the
Weekly Themes for Project Wisdom Elementary Series 1. They are listed in alphabetical order and represent specific values as
well as the benefits or application of those values. Although a Best Practice for implementation
is to use these in conjunction with either weekly or monthly themes, many schools do not use the themes and narrate the messages
from beginning to end. In that case, you can simply choose journal pages at random.
Schools use these journals in advisor/advisee and language arts, as well as during detention and in-school suspension. For
example, when a student is making poor choices, you might ask him or her to complete the journal page titled "Choices:
Choosing What's Right" and then use it as a springboard for discussion.
