Adapting to the changes

| By Makyla, 5th grade | December 2020 … To have to stay home with your family is a lot to take in. You also have to do things differently. My life has changed a lot this year. School has been hard. We are doing school at home now, and I don’t like doing school at home as much as school in person.  

I also don’t like not being able to see my teachers in person. 2020 has been very hard because of all the changes.  

I am seeing my family a lot more now that we are doing school at home. It’s good to spend time with family, and now we have more time together. We also get to do art and crafts.  

When you’re at home, you need persistence.
