School changed a lot when COVID-19 started in March, but overall things went pretty smoothly.
I did more hours of school than regular school and I liked that my teacher, Mr. Vanden Pol, had this website for all the assignments that we should be doing, which was pretty handy since he couldn’t tell us in person.
I liked homeschooling because it was quieter and everything was on a computer, which was easier because if I didn’t know something then I could just search it up or I could ask a parent.
I liked that we had Google Meets every Tuesday and Thursday because I could still ask some questions that no one in the house could answer and I was able to see my friends and know what they had been doing which I like.
School at home was a challenge, but I got better and better as I kept working on my school work online.
I think when I’m in grade 7, which will be this fall, I will be even better. It was more of a challenge for other students because some students don’t get help because they have to be home alone as their parents were still going to work.
