Another fantastic morning at @prospectridingcenter! This time our 6/7th grade students expanded their understanding of the horses' health and wellness, the types of ailments to be aware of, what qualities a vet would want them to communicate in times of illness, and how to monitor their gut sounds. A perfect pairing of the students' current physiology block! 💗🐎 . . . . . . #mangrovesarasota #headhearthands #horses #horsebackriding #physiology #integrated #subjects #alternative #education #greenschool #socialemotional #learning #learnbydoing #thisisschool #sarasota #sarasotafl #siestakey @ Mangrove School of Sarasota ...

Sweet, thoughtful, generous and sneaky!😂 We are so lucky to have kids (and families) like these in our community. So touched by all the planning and scheming that went into this heartwarming early morning birthday surprise. They even wrote a poem for their teacher, that was well written, funny, and honest. 💕 So much love here. 💖🙏 . . . . . . . #mangrovesarasota #birthdays #thoughtful #doers #surprise #raisethemwell #community #kindness #alternative #school #thisisschool ...

Forest Friday Fun! Thanks so much to Around the Bend for our dipnetting excursion last Friday! It warmed up just in time for all ages to enjoy exploration, species identification and a game focused on the local osprey. Engaging and thought provoking, and a great way to end the week. 🌳💚 . . . . . . @ Emerson Point Preserve ... See MoreSee Less
For our older students' birthdays, each student chooses a meal or snack to make together as a class..in this case muffins were chosen, so we used this as an opportunity to learn the chemistry of muffins and cakes, along with the nutrients present in the ingredients of our recipe, as chemical reactions and human physiology are two of our themes this year. 🌠 they also learn the importance of cleaning as you bake, 😂 they create a space of celebration,🕯 greet our honored parent guests, and in this case, make tea on a chilly day. 🌬 And another teenager is in the house!💖 . . . . . . @ Mangrove School of Sarasota ...
