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.
The literacy unit I created has specific Tacky the Penguin activities for the following 6 Tacky books:

If you don’t own those books, they can easily be found at most libraries!
At the end of the unit, there are also some response sheets that can be used with any Tacky book!
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 close look at what’s included:
and there is lots more!
