Series 2 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 2. 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: Doing the Right Thing" and then
use it as a springboard for discussion.

"One particular student states that the messages help him gain his focus each morning before
school starts. He told me that regardless of how his day has started at home, he knows that he has the opportunity
to start over again after hearing the message."
