Autonomous learning is a topic of common concern in the education community. Various effective attempts and researches have been made around autonomous learning. However, autonomous learning is carried out more in the context of normal teaching, and lacks the exploration of elementary student autonomous learning outside the normal teaching scene. During the COVID-19 epidemic, the Second Elementary School in Daxie, Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province adopted an online education model to carry out distance education activities and student academic counseling, and actively developed teaching practices for students’ independent learning at home. We discuss the teaching practice of home study for students during the school epidemic.
