I grew up in Tennessee where sports and loyalty to sports teams go long and far.  Peyton Manning is a southern legend! Not just because his dad was a professional southern league quarterback, but because he was the QB for the Tennessee Volunteers!! 

You can still #16 orange jerseys throughout Tennessee and Peyton Manning Way and Locker Complex are must see's when visiting Neyland Stadium! Photo credit

I followed Peyton's career to Indianapolis along with the rest of my southern family and hung faithful as he found his way out west with my second childhood favorite team, the Denver Broncos. I remember cheering Elway on during his Super Bowl victories and I am beyond thrilled to go back there again with Peyton in SUPERBOWL 50!!! Two weeks from today we will be screaming and wearing orange and blue in this house!!! 

I hope you will be cheering on with the Big Blue Bear that sits outside of Denver's Convention Center in 2 weeks!! I am so proud of the DENVER BRONCOS and their perseverance!! They showed what determination through hard times is all about!! 

I have teamed up with my Bronco blogging teacher friends for today's amazing AFC Championship Win!  Follow along in our blog hop, picking up amazing football freebies to use with your class and enter the Rafflecopter for your chance to win gift cards to TPT, Papa John's Pizza, and Cinemark movies!!  

My students love using technology. I created these Football QR Code Writing Prompts for them to write about next week before the Super Bowl.  They scan one card or one side of the cube, open it into NOTES on the iPad
and can finish writing to the prompts.  The notes can be uploaded into Google Docs, Educreations Application, or emailed to me.  They really enjoy writing this way. Look for this set to make it into my Growing Bundle!
