7th Grade Science, Mrs. Matthis

Your child’s textbook is different from most—it’s meant for students to write in it. Therefore, it is a record of learning. Look through lessons your child has completed recently, and be sure to ask lots of questions. One of the best ways for students to check on their learning is to explain it to someone else.


  • Ask your child about homework assignments and check that he or she has completed them.
  • Help your child collect materials and information for school activities.
  • Encourage computer literacy. Advise your child to use computers, tablets, or other devices in school or at the library. If you have a home computer, help your child do research online.
