Due to the epidemic this year, the holidays have been particularly extended. Although the epidemic has created a delay in the students' regular school calendar, their enthusiasm for independent learning, self-discipline and their faith to succeed ahead has persisted. During this special period, the switch to online classes has tested the students’ self-discipline for homeschooling. Self-discipline is to have an action plan, but to also be responsible, proactive, and efficient. It is through self-management, independence, and a focused attitude in learning that the students in Living Word Shanghai manage their daily school work. Let's see who the role models are!

Actually i did enjoy the period staying at home and having online courses. I felt like i had never left such long time for myself to learn, to access to the kitchen and to develop new skills. During this period, i cultivated good habits like getting and going to bed early, exercising regularly, etc. Personally, i think there might be some disadvantges taking oneline courses, but the study effiency can be gauranteed, even higher then at school. I appreciate all the efforts our teachers paid on us.

It's been a long time since I've forgotten what it's like to go to school. Personally, I like online classes. I can sit in a casual position and sleep a little more in the morning than in a normal class. Of course, the online course also has some inconveniences. However, what impressed me most was my 3d art class. During the epidemic period, I went out as less as I could, and there were restrictions on the online shopping of many materials. I thought of using paper roll and toothpicks at home, and decided to make a 3d installation out of the rubbish.
Net class does not seem to have a big impact on her, she likes to stay at home. She told me that if she could not hear some knowledge points clearly in class, she could check them up on the Internet any time. At home, she had more time with family and tried to develop some new skills. For example, when I came home that day, I saw her making pancakes in the kitchen. After a while, she finished a matcha pancake, and sometimes she paints in the room by herself. Thanks again for teachers’ recognition.

During online classes，stting infront of the computer for a long time will cause damage to spine and shoulder muscles, so I thought doing more activities like dancing and stretching will keep me in a more healthy condition.
Unlike in school, online study requires student to develope a self awareness in order for them to learn knowledge, her performance so far has exceeded my expectation, she focus in class and listen to teachers. After class she would do excersices with me. Even during special time, we are still living a productive life.
Self-discipline creates growth; it is the cornerstone of success, and the best gift to yourself in your educational journey. During the days of homeschooling, students are working tirelessly and growing in knowledge. Don't let the epidemic and extended holiday time stop your opportunity for educational growth. Suspended classes on campus do not mean suspended learning, keep studying and don’t waste any time. Please be inspired by this message: The more you practice self-discipline, the happier you will be! The more self-discipline, the more fruitful the results! The more self-discipline, the more outstanding you will be!
