“Hello, I’m Todd the Tallying Toad.
I get you started on the problem-solving road.
A tally mark is a straight line to show one;
Grouping tallies into fives is how it is done.
First make four tallies, nice and straight;
Then make a diagonal fifth tally; you’re doing great!”
Check out our Todd the Tallying Toad blog post to learn more about his strategy.
