Using Tally Marks

This week in Math we are learning how to use and read tally marks. Yesterday, we started by playing a Mystery Person game, in which we tracked the number of questions needed to identify the mystery person.

Today we reviewed how to use tally marks and then the students had the opprotunity to count different items in the room using tally marks. 

You can help your child at home by encouraging them to count items at home using tally marks. Don’t forget to group the tally marks into groups of five!
