Tacky the Penguin

I love the Tacky the Penguin books.  Here are a couple of ideas that we did with Tacky today!  We used hula hoops to make a Venn Diagram and used words that they came up with to describe Tacky and his companions.  The other is an art idea- In groups of 3 or 4 the children tore black and orange paper to make the penguin black and white- we left the paper white (did not tear up white paper) Then the orange for his feet and beak. Next they tore up colored paper to make a "Hawaiian" style shirt.  They loved it!

  2. So cute! We need to have a tacky day at school. You know, where all the kids get to dress up in their tacky clothes. I think it would be a great way to extend vocabulary!

    1. No template. I am pretty sure Kim just free handed in on poster board! Sorry!
