One of the skills practiced by my Kindergarten students is making tally marks. This is practiced on a daily basis in the their Calendar Notebooks as they track the number of days in each month as well as the daily weather. I have noticed that this skill is one that could stand some additional practice, so I put together a hands-on lesson highlighting the tally mark concept.
|Craft stick tally marks - it's very simple yet concrete. I added a basket of small stones each with the numbers 1-15. Later I plan to add numbers 16-20 - I just ran out of craft sticks…!|
