Tacky the Penguin Activities

If I can find one reason to be bummed that I'm on maternity leave, it's that I don't get to teach TACKY! My students l-o-v-e reading about that silly Tacky and I love teaching all about him! Last year I created my Mo Willems author study and I wanted to create a similar unit focused on Tacky with some great Tacky the penguin activities.

Pin it:

I scoured through the six Tacky books that I own and read each year and came up with comprehension, vocabulary, and opinion questions for each text. I also made a little Tacky craft and some general Tacky activities that can be used with any book.

Here is a little look at what's included:

and there is lots more!

  1. How fun. We love Tacky, especially his horrible singing voice!

  2. That's amazing! I'm sure all kids adore these activities. Sometimes it can be difficult to engage young learners and you definitely need something interesting to both have fun and study something new. A while ago I got original essay writer support to come up with perfect tasks and games for my kiddos. Now I plan on getting some printouts with pictures. There are so many though, and a usually feel like a child in a candy shop whenever I try to pick only one set. Anyway, thanks for another great post!
