Most kids don’t even want to do their schoolwork for the two weeks off. But, I don’t mind it! I am having more fun than I thought I would have. I sort of enjoy the schoolwork, and my mom’s take on homeschool during this crisis.
My mom is making school fun with her take on homeschool. She does fun experiments with my brother, sister, and I. One of my personal favorites is the taste test. We would close our eyes, and pinch our nose, and then my mom would give a bite of food. Sometimes it would taste different, and other times you couldn’t even taste anything at all! The jalapeño surprised me the most. You couldn’t taste the spice! Another experiment was one where my mom put water and pepper in a bowl, and soap in another. You would dip your finger in the soap bowl, and after that, you would lightly touch the surface of the water in the bowl with water and pepper in it. The pepper would spread out to the sides of the bowl! That was to teach us why washing your hands is so important. Especially in this coronavirus.
Another thing my mom does while we are at home is, she takes us on virtual field trips to anywhere. From the green rolling hills of Ireland, to the fancy halls of the Louvre Art museum in France, these virtual field trips are fun!
I really like how my mom “homeschools” my siblings and I during these two weeks off due to the coronavirus! She makes schoolwork fun, and learning fun at home!
