Each set of Wrap-Ups contains ten self-correcting, joined-at-the-top boards (about 1 1/2” x 5”), with a colorful, attached string. The string wraps around from the problem on the left to the answer on the right. If the answers are correct, the string will cover the lines on the back of the board.
This is a wonderful tool for visual and kinesthetic children, and if you encourage them to say the problems aloud, it is equally marvelous for the auditory child. Because it is self-correcting, your children will have immediate feedback for checking accuracy (plus, it takes you out of the picture as the bearer of “bad news”).

These are so much fun! We bought addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. So much better than flash cards. Its and engaging activity that kids can do independently (in the car, yay!) and can self correct. The weaving motion is great for kids with dysgraphia/dyslexia. There are no pieces to lose and the string/yarn has held up nicely.
My kids love it and so enjoy using it in the car, even if our travels are for short distances!
We bought four sets recently. Addition through division. My kids like them way more than flash cards and my husband and I find ourselves playing with them too! Learned I needed to brush up on a few of my division problems. Ahem. I never cared for math and several of my kids feel the same. However, they really do like playing with these and showing each other if their strings are lining up correctly! We would love to buy all the wrap ups. The only downside is we have a family of nine so it adds up. Definitely worth buying though!
What a great alternative to learning math facts. We try to incorporte our wrap ups 2x a week.The kids get tired of worksheets for math facts and this is a great solution. They can even self-check the answers on the back. We make sure they are wrapped up before we put them away otherwise the string gets knotted. We use the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
3 of our 4 boys liked them - easy to take anywhere, no loose parts to get lost, quick and simple to use, no pencil and paper required. The odd-man-out? Not a big fan of Wrap-Ups because he'd much rather flip through flash cards or fill out nice and neat drill sheets.
