When the coronavirus pandemic shut down schools across the country, millions of students were forced to learn at home. As part of an assignment, 5th graders from Springboro, Ohio, and 7th graders from Summerville, S.C., wrote about their experiences during the pandemic’s early days. They share their favorite entries, describing the events in their lives and their feelings about how life has changed.
