Count a small board first to practice.

The problem with a couple of those examples is leaving the dame unfilled. Filling the dame before scoring is the normal practice.

Perhaps not just "normal practice" but something beginners should certainly do because can make a difference in the score. As dame are filled, it may become apparent that a defensive play is needed. For example, which side fills a dame may affect the connectivity of a group. Life and death situations may depend on how many open dame.
