    Sentence correction.

    Count it on your fingers and not mark.

    (In context of teaching addition to students.)

    sdpegasus, we know that you can give meaningful titles to your threads, so please do not use the generic "sentence correction".
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    I'm not sure that I understand what you're trying to tell them to do. Do you mean "Add it up using your fingers, don't write anything down"?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    No I was asking that student to count on his fingers instead of using tally marks while teaching him addition.So in short I wrote a note in his notebook "count on fingers and not mark".I just want to know if there is any grammatical mistake in my note.

    Your sentence is grammatically incorrect. I have already suggested one correct version but I assume you didn't like it, so here are some more:

    Count on your fingers - don't use tally marks.
    Use your fingers to count. Don't use your pen/pencil.
    Use your fingers, not tally marks, to count.
