Table Tally Freebie

I use table tallys to encourage teamwork in my classroom. I also use them to encourage my students to keep their "lips zipped" throughout the day so everyone can get their work done! The table(s) that I see working together during a clean up and/or working quietly can earn a tally mark. At the end of the week the table with the most tallys earns our class trophy to have at their table for the week (a plastic trophy from Target's Dollar Spot). Whenever I mention "table tallys"my students help each other during clean up and keep their voices off... works like a charm!  I made a page to keep track of tallys and keep it on our class data wall. I laminated it and use a visa vi marker to keep track. Click here to download a copy!
