300 Followers...WHAT? A Giveaway!

Okay, so technically I have 299 followers as of this morning, but hey, I teach rounding, so I'm calling it 300.  If we want to get technical, I can call my mom and ask her to follow me!  But, Wow...3 weeks ago I was having a giveaway for 100 followers!  I turned around (attended a few workshops, visited my family, hung out by the pool, and visited some colleges) and the next thing I know there are 300 of you hanging around. :-) I can't begin to tell you how happy I am you're here!  Hopefully you'll stick around for the next 300 too!  I plan to continue gabbing, sharing, and hopefully offering a little bit of something you can use in your classroom!  If you're late to the party, it's okay, but don't forget to visit the freebies page and make sure you're up to date...I've added 3 new freebies in the last 3 weeks!  (More to come!)
SO....I wanna do something fun.  I'm going to take it easy on you and avoid the 500 ways you can follow me.  ;-)   How about I get to hear more about you?!  YAY!   And... how about only 3 rules?
I mentioned I went to a workshop recently. The presenter made us choose what kind of SUIT we were (AS TEACHERS) in a deck of cards using the following rubric. 
  
SPADES:  Quiet, reflective, willing to change/bend, agreeable, and a follower
CLUBS:  organized, detail oriented, classroom management is your thing, planned all the time
HEARTS:  caring, loving, soft spoken, fun, share freely, go with the flow
DIAMONDS:  techno savvy, focused, driven, try new things, and love the newest strategies


So here are the rules to this simple giveaway!  
1.)  Be a follower of my blog (I really want someone who hangs out with me to WIN!)
2.)  Blog, Tweet, Pin, or FB about the giveaway so I can share with other teachers too!
3.)  Leave me a comment with which SUIT you most likely resemble and WHY in a deck of cards, using the indicators above.  (For you rebels and rule breakers  teachers who think you're more than one suit.... You can ONLY pick ONE....the ONE that BEST represents you!)  *I know, I know, I thought I was more than one too, but eventually  had to give in and pick ONE so you can too!  :-)     *Leave me your email too so I can send you your prize if you win!


That's it!  Ready for the prize?  It's a 300 follower celebration, so I'm going to stick to a "3" theme.  
$30.00 gift card to Amazon AND 3 things from my TpT and/or TN store!  I'll use Rafflecopter and select a winner on Thursday, June 28th @ midnight!
Ready? Set! ENTER!  


Bananas for 300 followers, shopping @ Amazon, and teachers who are NOT all one suit...we sure would be boring!

I think its funny that so many of us teachers don't think we're just one thing- suit or otherwise! It was hard for me to pick between hearts and diamonds, but I decided I'm MOST hearts! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

I'm not sure exactly what techno savy means, but if I have to pick just one I'd have to go with Diamond.

Well... since you are being a meany and forcing me to pick just ONE ... I suppose I'm SOMETIMES a spade. (But I'm really a pinch of all...so there!)

Jackie said...

It's so, so, so hard to pick one suit, but I think I'll go with diamonds! I love technology...at home, in the classroom, and everywhere! {I don't know what I'd do without my iPhone!} And I really do love to try new things...I taught the past two years with two wonderful teachers who taught me in 2nd and 3rd grade and they were great enough to try all of the new things I wanted to do with me!

Congrats on 300 followers! I love your blog and all of your great ideas...not to mention all of your tpt and tn products!

First of all, Congratulations on 300!! That is so exciting!! I just hit 100, and hope I get as popular as quickly as you :P
I definitely have to say that I am CLUBS all the way. I love to be organized and have a binder for everything, get stressed if I'm not planned and class management is def. my thang. My first year, my vp kept trying to pop in to see my kids all crazy because she could never get over how well behaved they were! lol

Congrats on reaching 300 :) This is such a fun giveaway. Like most I am a little bit of all of them, but I fall into the Clubs category the most. I LOVE finding new classroom management techniques and love to organize just about anything I can get my hands on :) Thanks for such a great giveaway.

Janine said...

I think I am between a club and a diamond when it comes to work, but hearts when I am away from my life as a teacher. I try really hard not to intertwine the two because I have been burned quite a few times when trying to have to many work friends flow into my personal life. Lesson learned and life is good! Congrats on 300, I know how it feels and you deserve it! Enjoy!

I think I am mostly hearts! (Of course, like others, I think I have parts of the other suits!) Congrats on 300! Oh and you didn't share which suite you thought you were!?!? Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway!

Tamera said...

Just like the Dr. Oz body type quiz I took yesterday - I am all over the place. As a spade, I am quiet, willing to change and agreeable - but I am NOT a follower. As a club, I attempt organization and my management works for me. But if I have to pick just 1 or 2, I am the Heart/Diamond! I caring, loving, soft spoken, fun, share freely, go with the flow! If I am in the middle of teaching my "plans" and get a better idea - I just go with it. I also like to think I am techno savvy and driven. I LOVE to try new things in the classroom and sometimes it freaks, I mean stresses, my teammates out.

If I have to choose one I would say Hearts.I don't have my own class, but I float from K-3 working on Literacy skills, so I certainly know how to go with the flow.

Mrs. Polston said...

I'm going with Diamonds - of course they are a girls best friend also :) But of the four this is most me. Congrats on getting to 300!

Man this is tough! I would like to say I am a little bit of everything, but I think I am HEARTS.

I had a great mentor to model what an exceptional teacher looks like. ;) Keep up the amazing work you do!

I'm gonna say that even though I'm all of them, I'm a Clubs kinda girl....I'm VERY organized and my kids know the routine back of their hand - they teach the new kids, even...but even having said that, I can change and bend easily, and I really pretty laid back...lol

Michelle said...

THIS has been SOOOO fun! I am enjoying reading these! Boy, there ARE bunch of rule breakers though! Ya'll can't stand just being ONE thing, huh?
To Teaching Joys: I wondered who would ask first what I thought I was? I went with hearts, but really struggled because I am so much a diamond too. But overall, the heart trumped diamond in the end. Thanks for asking!
Glad you're having fun and thanks again to all of you for entering! I can't wait to see who wins! :-)

Congrats on the 300! You do have a great blog! I am definitely a CLUB! I organize all the time! I even organize my organizers! I have a notebook for everything. My kiddos know exactly what the routine is. I plan all the time and and have no life! I even change my plans when I see that the kids aren't being successful. I'm already planning out for next year and already have my room ready. But, really I am a fun person! My kids say that I make them laugh so I do have a sense of humor!

Liz Langhoff said...

I definitely have good behavior management (I don't think you can survive in title 1 without it), but I'm not always organized. I go with the flow A LOT and my kids know this. If I had to pick.... I think I'm closest to diamonds. As a first year (well I just finished my 1st year) teacher, I'm ALWAYS trying new things!

Also, I love trying new strategies. . .I'm in a "blog book club" right now for The Daily Five. I'm hoping to implement this into my classroom this fall! So not only am I driven to learn more, I feel like I just love to absorb all that is out there for me to learn! HAPPY 300 FOLLOWERS MICHELLE!

I guess you can officially say you have 300 followers. I am now a follower. I teach a self-contained special ed. classroom with all kinds of disabilities. This next year I will have students in 1st-3rd grade. I'd have to say I am a spades, heart and a diamond but not a club. Love your blog!! I will be sending friends your way.

Diana said...

I am one of your newest followers. I would have to say that I am clubs.

Eliana said...

Spades all the way....always have been. My grade school teachers would describe me just like the spade! Thanks for the fun contest!

I definitely could pick from each category, hopefully all of us could, which makes for great teaching. If you insist on picking only one suit to describe me, I'd pick Hearts. :) Thanks for a chance at a great giveaway.

PS- I really like how your comments stand out from your readers. Very cool.

Melissa Yglesias said...

Although like the others I have qualities for each of the suits... I am most like HEARTS. I very much go with the flow. It takes A LOT to make me upset because I am so easy going.
BTW- I love the monkey theme!

I am loving the monkey theme on your blog, Michelle! I'm your newest follower. In response to your question, I think I'm closest to a diamond. I love trying new things out in the classroom and technology in the classroom is definitely my thing! :)

I'd love it if you stopped by the Beach Brains' Blog if you have a chance!

Congratulations on 300 followers! In fact, it looks like a whole lot more than that now!

I'm a little bit of all the "suits", but I'd say Clubs "suits" me best!

I'm a heart, with the exception of being soft spoken. I'm loud.

Congrats on 300. I am a diamond. I like to try new technology and then help to convince other teachers to try as well.

If I had to pick one, I would be a club.

Heather said...

I think all of us see a little bit of each personality in each suit...but that is because good teachers have to be good at EVERYTHING :)

Since I have to choose...I would say I am most like the Diamond.

Just found your blog. Wow, congratulations on 300 followers! I'm now one of your newest followers. As to what suit I am, I would say I'm a spade. I do not like conflict and want things to run smoothly. I can be a great listener and am very reflective. Though I am organized and extremely detail oriented, I would say I am mostly a spade.

My e-mail is jamier4jc@ymail.com
