Series 3 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 3. 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: My Choices,
My Future" and then use it as a springboard for discussion.
