Reading Teepee!

Yippee! We have a reading teepee!


You know that we already had a reading tent and a campfire. A few weeks ago, one of our great teachers stopped by and offered me the use of a teepee that someone made for her. Oh, yes!

Our PE teacher had some lengths of PVC pipe that we used as the frame, and we tied the top together with twine. It's perfect for November and Thanksgiving!

Do students love to read in a teepee?


You know they do!

I put 4 of our backjack chairs inside the teepee. It doesn't do much for the authentic Native American look, but I was worried that a student would lean back against one of the support poles and bring down the whole structure.

After we built our teepee, I found this video, which would have made the construction process much simpler!


I am thankful for teachers who share, and for fun places to read. I am thankful for my job as an elementary school librarian, the best job on the planet! Where else could I have this much fun?

I hope you are loving your job this Thanksgiving season!

    1. Thanks, Carolyn! I barely squeezed our teepee in, and I blocked part of the biography section...but only for a couple of weeks. It's worth it!

  2. Everyone needs a computer, even if you’re knee-deep in your iPhone,
    there are striking advantages to owning a PC that give us better
    performance to use it, the most expensive configuration,
    which comprises an Audio Block for built-in sound output,
    a 1TB hard drive block and even a graphics block for Ultra HD video.
    The following configurations are great to use my pc:
    CPU: Intel Core i5 – Core i7, Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 480 –
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080, Storage: 1TB HDD – 512GB SSD; 2TB HDD,
    Communication: Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2,
    Dimensions (W x D x H): 7.09 x 14.02 x 15.22 inches
    Actually my pc is great for using as well as to play and it’s
    better to care your Best PC that means due time charging its better
    don’t go to emergency charging that’s I do and thanks to everyone.
