What are tally marks?

Tally marks are sometimes referred to as hash marks.

They are used to help children when they are counting or tallying a group of results.

These symbols can be used to help keep score during a game or when counting a group of objects.

Before children use tally marks for tracking results of a survey or of a game, they need to know how to read and form tallies.

To practice, give students counters. Have them practice placing the objects into groups of five. Model how a group of five is written using tallies.

Give different groupings of counters and work with students to tally the amount.

For students to understand the concept, it is always important to provide hands-on practice with manipulatives.

You can then give children the opportunity to share what they know by completing a worksheet.
