Looking for a learning manipulative that is truly portable? Wrap-Ups can be used in the car, at the beach, at the doctor's office, or even during a home-school meeting; the possibilities are endless! Wrap-Ups are excellent for drill work, and because of their portability, they can be practiced anywhere. Challenge your children to complete a board in less than a minute before starting the next board.
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. It is equally marvelous for the auditory child if you encourage them to say the problems aloud. Because it is self-correcting, your children will have immediate feedback for checking accuracy. Even better? If the answers are incorrect, it takes you out of the picture as the bearer of "bad news"!
