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”).

So, this one is tricky. I had to go to the company’s website to look up the directions because, as an adult, I couldn’t figure it out. Once we got that problem fixed, it became apparent that my son had tactile issues with this one. He couldn’t hold it and keep the string taut enough to have it not mess up. So, I have to do it for him. He says all the answers and I do the wrapping. Is it great? No. Does it help reinforce his subtraction... YES.
My kids enjoy using these so much more than flashcards to learn math. The wrap ups are such an effective tool for mastering basic math. An added plus is that my kids can work independently with it while I'm helping a sibling with something else.
This is a great resource for my kids to practice their math facts on their own, since it is self correcting. Small enough for the car, too!
This is a great tool to help kids learn their subtraction facts! It is totally self correcting, so kids can check their own work! Great product from usborne!
My son loved it after we figured out how to use them!
