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”).

This thing is the best. I can't have enough things that my children can do independently. This tool is great and they enjoy working with it too. It was a little difficult at first for my five year old to manage the string, but after some practice he was able to do it on his own.
Easy to use and fun way to review!
These are great to take along in the car and a fun way to practice subtraction facts. They are small enough to fit in a purse or keep in the cup holder so they are always available while riding in the car or waiting at an appointment.
...my son did not like it. I would pull these out after he completed his math worksheets from Math-U-See and he would just groan. We did not get through these as many times as I would have liked. I thought they were a great way to reinforce what he was learning in Math-U-See and help with some of the memorization goals. Hope your kiddo likes these better then mine did!
Love this item! It has been hugely helpful in our little one being willing to practice her math skills.
