Third graders help compose songs with “Story Laurie”
This fall, the third grade had the chance to compose songs with singer/songwriter Laurie McIntosh. This was part of a grant from the Catskill Watershed Corporation, and hosted by Farm Catskills. 
 
In this “Cultivating Connections” songwriting residency, McIntosh – also known as “Story Laurie” – met with each third-grade class for four separate songwriting sessions. By the end of the program, each class had written a song. The songs were performed at an assembly for grades K-3. 
 
Themes for the songs included the following: keeping Earth clean; teaching tips along the lines of the water cycle; the watershed in general; streams; seasons on the farm; and autumn harvest and nature.
