Magnolia School founder and Board Chair Susan Smith has been singing every Tuesday afternoon with the whole elementary school. One of the songs they learned this fall was “The Cat Came Back,” a traditional song with many different verses and versions.
We started by watching several animated versions on YouTube. Then we sang the song with some of the best verses. After that, Susan worked with the classrooms to write their own rap verses. With the help of Thomas Jackson, we recorded our version and it has now been uploaded to YouTube. The cat art shown with the words was created by our students too, of course. Now, when people go looking for versions of “The Cat Came Back,” they’ll find the Magnolia School version too!
