TALLY MARK PRACTICE | Peace, Love, and First Grade


Quick post today to share something that works in my classroom. 
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. 
Simple materials like popsicle sticks (craft sticks) work well for young kiddos
...and they love it!
You could even use two different color sticks-one color for tallies 1-4
 and a different color for the 5th tally. Happy Counting!
