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”).

When we received these, my son said, "what in the world is that thing?!" He was actually frustrated when he first started using it, because it just didn't make sense to him. Now, though, he's getting the hang of it and realizing that it's actually not that bad. I'm glad it's helping him learn. I wasn't a fan of them growing up.
I remember having these as a kid and just had to have them for my kids too! I ordered the addition and subtraction ones. I hope to see multiply and division in the future. They are a great quiet time tool.
This is a fun addition to the kit. I love the self checking feature because I just give these to my son to fidget with in the car or at home I when I need to keep him busy for a minute.
My 6 year old was getting frustrated with the repetitiveness of math. She loves playing this 'game' instead. It has been a nice way to take a break from the regular math program but still reinforce the subtraction facts that she has been working on.
My 6 year old really enjoys the Wrap-Ups and they are a great alternative to flash cards!
