Tacky the Penguin! - Susan Jones Teaching

Tacky the Penguin!

We dove into character traits this week and what better guy to do that with than Tacky?!?!
Tacky the Penguin

My kids love this odd little penguin!

After reading the book, I recorded what my little ones had to say:

Then we used Lindsey (The Teacher Wife)'s character page from her Reading Comprehension Pack.
I have both her packs and they are seriously fabbb-ulous!

I must say, I thought Tacky was going to be a shoe-in for the class favorite, but many picked the other penguins because they were "polite" and "neat" and "knew how to dive" lol!

So stinkin' cute!!
Things are underway in room 41B and we are FINALLY getting into the swing of things!

Happy hump day!

BTW - Did anyone else watch the Bachelor Pad finale - THOUGHTS!?!?


  1. Is perfect the name of the child or the penguin?!

    1. lol! The penguin.., I haven't had a child named "Perfect" yet!

  2. Love this activity! Your anchor chart turned out so adorable! I love that they picked other penguins as favorites because they were neat. Too funny.

    I watched Bachelor Pad and I am still shocked by Tony proposing to Blakely. I'm concerned for his son. And Nick oooh he got everyone good. Not a fan of him and he made Kalon look like an angel. Overall this season was a disappointment for me. Did you like it?

      I didn't mind this season for what it was... background noise lol. I always have it on while I'm working on lesson plans or something! I was so surprised by Nick and I think karma will come back and bite him in the you know what!

  3. Dude . . . nice writing samples friend. You definitely have a workable crew this year ;). Lovin' that anchor chart too. I think you need to come visit me so you can help me make mine cuter. You got mad skills sweets!
