Our Blessed Sacrament School Students continue learning through these difficult Covid-19 times. Our focus is ELA (English, Reading, Spelling) and Math, and of course Religion. We need our faith as Christians more than ever during these trying times in our lives. Through ELA we are able to integrate other subject areas of the curriculum as well. We utilized paper packets with lessons, as well as many online websites to help our students maintain, enhance, and challenge our students in their learning. During the week, the second grade gathers together on Zoom to do lessons in subject areas, read aloud stories, and gather socially to see all of our friends. As we navigate together through these uncertain times, we remember that the educational and emotional well-being of our students is most important.
The Second Graders enjoy “Zooming”(an online video communication website) with their teacher and classmates. Our story was “Cowboys.” It was a story from our Reading text, and the genre was Narrative Nonfiction. The students learned about the long cattle drives, what it was like to be a cowboy, why ranchers branded their cattle, etc. We read our story aloud and did fun activities like dressing up as cowboys/cowgirls to keep our online learning fun!!!
Deb Waltz graduated from Central Michigan University in 1993. She began her teaching career at Blessed Sacrament School right after graduation. Deb also attended Blessed Sacrament School, so it is a true blessing to be teaching here and to give the quality education and faith filled environment that she had as a child to our students today. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends. Deb loves teaching because our students are very important and we need to help them succeed academically as well as spiritually. They are our future!! Together, we can “Make a Difference.”
