Tacky, penguins, and writing!

Just posted my new penguin unit!! What started out as a 10 little diddy JUST for me, ended up being 50 pages to share with y'all! lol

That happens.... a LOT, actually. :)

So here it is, my new "baby!"

There are TONS of things in this pack.

What I'm super excited about is the book writing part of the pack!! I've already got mine all copied off and ready to go (yes, I'm probably in the negative now in my copy numbers at school, but who cares... The kids LOVE doing these!

I just went and downloaded it. Too bad I'm already doing a space theme this year. It is definitely on the long range plan for next year, though!

We love Tacky. This is a great unit. Just bought it. I like how you put it on sale for a short time. Thanks for doing this for teachers who spend so much money for their classrooms. It is appreciated more than you know!
