Learning during the pandemic brought many changes in student behavior, either in a positive or negative direction. The pattern of learning carried out from face-to-face to online raises many problems that cannot be ignored. Especially experienced by sixth graders in elementary school. The method used in this study is qualitative ethnography, namely a description method that describes student behavior during the pandemic. Sampling was taken using a non-probabilistic purposive sampling with the criteria of students having cases in learning behavior during the pandemic. Data collection techniques are observation, interviews, documentation, and triangulation. Data analysis uses data reduction, data presentation, temporary answers, and conclusions. Respondents in this study were sixth graders at the Mangunjiwan 1 Demak State Elementary School. The results showed that there was a change in student behavior in learning it was influenced by several factors, namely 1) parental attention, parental education, parents' work background and the number of families, 2) the efforts made by providing guidance and assistance to students, establishing good communication with students and parents, visiting students' homes. From the results of the study, it can be concluded that there is a need to improve communication relationships more intensively between students, teachers, and parents in discipline and student learning time.
