When learning numbers, having representations can really help solidify number reasoning in young mathematicians. This fun worksheet lets them use some friends in the form of friendly bugs to efficiently and accurately count and represent the value with tally marks. They'll learn first-hand how tally marks can help make adding and subtracting bigger numbers easier, and give them real-world skills for times when they're playing games, counting or more.
Using tally marks is a strategy young mathematicians use when counting on or back, and particularly when learning to count and give value to larger numbers efficiently. With this downloadable PDF, they'll learn that each tally mark represents one, and that when they count five, they can make a cool new group that will help them add and subtract faster and with efficiency and accuracy. They'll be able to apply using tallies to everything from math problems to scorekeeping when playing games with their friends.
Kids love to put puzzles together, and they'll really love this brightly colored worksheet that will let them practice representing numbers with tally marks and then matching for accuracy as well. Teaching tallies helps children learn to count and assign value in an efficient and accurate way, and leads to their ability to do greater level math problems with automaticity and strategies (counting by 5s) down the road.
