I haven't tested this out but the teacher next door uses pretzel sticks to practice using tally marks. I thought it was a pretty good idea. I haven't explicitly taught them yet but we use them to record information.

We do a fun song with tally marks to the tune of 10 Little Indians... adapted slightly from one I found online a while back:

Four vertical lines and one diagonal,
Four vertical lines and one diagonal,
Four vertical lines and one diagonal,
Makes a group of five tally marks!

We stand up and act out the song each time we make a group of five. They just love it! Let me know if your kids like it if you end up using it with your class!

Thanks Kerri and Jessica for the ideas. I will have to try them.
