Wordless Wednesday-Tally Marks


Tally Marks Activities for Kindergarten and First Grade
Why are tally marks so difficult for some children?

I've found giving kiddos a chance to manipulate tallies helps bridge the gap...and they love it!

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  3. This really works. I heard about it a year ago and it has made all the difference in my students learning how to write and count tally marks. No more pulling my hair out over the few who can't get it because now they do.

  6. Great idea! Thanks so much to all of you first grade teachers who teach tallying! I'm so thankful that when they get to me in grade 3 they've already mastered writing and counting tally marks!
