The subjects of Art and Math don’t seem like they belong together… and yet, for Grant Elementary Kindergarten Teacher Lyndsee Wheeler the answer is in brain synergy!
That’s because she’s discovered one great way to help kids learn something hard is to engage both halves of the brain – the analytic and the creative. This amalgamation of the technical and inspirational sparks interest, embeds retention skills, and makes the process more relevant and fun for students.
So, it’s no surprise her MEF Grant funding request was for good old-fashioned card stock, colored pencils, paints, stencils, and binding materials. These tools are simple, but what she does with them is magical and miraculous for her students.
MEF partners with the community to fund educator grants that help students grow.
