Marinette Intermediate School is committed to offering high quality, individualized Instruction for Grades 2-4.
Engaging and rigorous instruction develops critical thinkers and problem solvers. As we build a strong foundation of numeracy skills, students also engage in meaningful mathematics conversations to deepen conceptual understanding, strengthen procedural fluency, enhance their reasoning skills, and justify their strategies. We build the foundation so that all students can achieve a high level of mathematics proficiency.
Reading and Writing
Readers Workshop and Writers Workshop are two methods of instruction that make learning relevant and mastering new skills - fun! Both methods of instruction involve the teacher providing direct instruction; children growing through individual conferences and feedback; and each child making progress toward increasingly higher skills. We know not everyone learns at the same pace. Therefore, reading and math intervention services are provided to students needing extra support.
Our science curriculum is designed to develop young students’ curiosity and inspire them to be tomorrow’s explorers where the foundations of great scientific inquiry begin. Aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), our science curriculum drives student engagement and spurs inquisitive minds to consider, question, collaborate, and create while interweaving literacy to strengthen communication and scientific understanding.
The intermediate social studies curriculum focuses on the students' place in the world, Wisconsin & U.S. Studies to the French and Indian War through Wisconsin Statehood.
Supporting each child with a well-rounded educational program
All students have a 45-minute daily rotation for art, music, physical education and library. Additionally, all students get individualized support to advance their learning throughout the school day. Teachers add physical movement, positive behavior recognition, and social-emotional skills to each day to help children learn and grow!
Activities through-out the year encourage families to partner with the schools to help all students experience success. Parent-teacher organizations help families get involved and contribute to the school’s success.
Special services are available to all identified children and are an integral part of the academic and social emotional learning.
