Things to know:
  • Each theme includes 1) corresponding daily broadcast messages from which to choose, 2) corresponding journal pages, 3) corresponding lesson plans with additional broadcast messages.
  • Best practices include 1) posting themes on marquees, chalkboards, or in parent newsletters and 2) referring back to the themes as teachable moments arise.
  • It's important to remember that your school has entered into a licensing agreement with Project Wisdom. Copying, sharing, or transferring materials to another campus is strictly prohibited and threatens the viability of our small business.
