One of the things I love most about spring is waiting for rain showers to end so we can try to spot some rainbows.

You know how you always heard about “the end of the rainbow”? Well, it turns out there is no end.

I just read the other day that the rainbow always changes arc direction depending on your position. So as you travel, it seems to travel too.

Bummer.

They may not be what they appear, but rainbows are still plenty of fun for kids.

And that’s why I thought I’d make some **rainbow tally marks worksheets** for kids who are working on counting with tally marks!

These would be fantastic for spring math centers! Simply laminate the pages and let students use them with dry erase markers!

And be sure to grab more of our spring worksheets for kids, including our Flower Repeated Addition Worksheets!

Counting with tally marks can seem old-fashioned, but it’s still a wonderful math skill for kids to learn.

When students use tallies, they practice one to one correspondence, skip counting by fives, and number sense (understanding what numerals actually *mean*).

This product contains:

- Three color rainbow tally marks counting worksheets
- Three line art rainbow tally marks counting worksheets
- A full answer key
- A mini lesson about how to count with tally marks
- And a set of instructions!

Review the mini tally marks lesson with your class and then let the students get to work!

You might also find it helpful to keep a copy of the lesson at the math center for easy reference.
