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”).

My son doesn't care for math but he loves wrapping these so I'm calling it a win win situation.
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.
I really enjoy having these are extra practice for math lessons. Just like manipulatives, these keep their hands busy and involved. I like that it is self checking and therefore independent.
My kids thought these were so cool! I love that it makes review a sort of game, and we can take them in the car or to the doctor's office or other errands.
I thought this would be great for my first grader to practice with while I was busy with my younger children. But it is too big to fit in his hand. And he can't figure out how to get the right tension on the string in order to wrap up the answers. So it doesn't work for us, yet.
