Hi There! I hope you’re all having a great weekend! I’m so excited that summer is finally almost here! I know that some of my other school teacher/cycling instructor readers are already done with their school year, but I still have a week and a half left. Here’s hoping it goes by quickly! In my last post, I voted for American Author’s ‘Go Big Or Go Home’ as the song of the summer. It’s still in first place for me, but there’s another song creeping up right behind it: ‘Fight Song’ by Rachel Platten. I’ve used it a few times recently in my classes, and I like it better every time. It’s a great anthem and the lyrics really ask you to push hard. In this playlist it’s used as a hill, but I’ve also used it as a flat road and loved it just as well. Here’s this week’s playlist followed by my teaching notes. I hope you find something you can use!
