Shamrock Tally Marks

In math, we are learning the concept of tally marks.  I thought of a fun center in which the students can match the shamrocks with the same numeral and tally mark.  To see how you can use these shamrocks in 4th grade, head on over to Lessons with Laughter!

I bought foam shamrocks from the Dollar tree and puffy painted pairs with a number and same amount of tally marks.  The students will find the matching pairs and put them together.

After they find the matching pairs, they can practice writing tally marks on this worksheet.  (click on the picture to download)
