Wrap-Ups Alphabet
This is such a convenient learning tool for the younger crowd! Each set of Wrap-Ups contains ten self-correcting, joined-at-the-top boards (about 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. Because of the portability of Wrap-Ups, they can be practiced anywhere. Develops eye-hand coordination, left-to-right concept, tracking, and more! Excellent for drill-work, Wrap-Ups challenge your children as they race to complete each board. This is a wonderful tool for younger children who tend to be predominantly hands-on. Because it is self-correcting, your children will have immediate feedback for checking accuracy.
Ages: 4+

Good idea, but not as practical as other Wrap-Ups October 25, 2011
Reviewer: Kimberlee Morris from Spokane, WA United States  
I ordered the Alphabet Wrap-Ups for my three year old thinking it would be age-appropriate for him learning his letters while his older brother works on his addition and subtraction Wrap-Ups. I like the idea of them, but found the pictures that are supposed to match letters difficult to see well. I was puzzled enough over which letters matched which pictures that I don't know how a preschooler is supposed to be able to figure it out. It's a good idea, but not well-enough executed in this product for me to be pleased with this purchase. Also, he does not quite have the motor skills to wrap up the Wrap-Ups independently yet. In my opinion, the subject matter does not match the motor skill level of the intended age level.

Good concept, could be improved January 27, 2011
Reviewer: Debra Wallace from Rochester, NY United States  
I love that the string is attached, they are very sturdy and fun to play with.  

I was disappointed with the tasks they chose. They were: the order of the alphabet, match the letter to a picture it started with, match upper to lower case, match vowel sounds represented by different fonts, match long and short vowels with pictures, and two more alphabet ordering puzzles.

The only truly beneficial task was matching the upper and lower case letters.  Children who are learning letters really don't need to know the order of the alphabet.  Matching the letter with its sound would be great - but some of the pictures are hard to decipher (is it a hamburger or a flying saucer?), and I'm sorry, but the word "x-ray" is not a picture.  And the vowel sounds letters were a little lost on me... I'm not sure how matching the vowels in different sizes and fonts helps with anything.

I do love the concept and I think we'll use them, but I just would have loved to see more relevant tasks.

Great way to practice the alphabet October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
This is an excellent way for your child to have hands-on practice with learning the Upper and Lower case.  The nice thing is that since so many letters are obvious, they are assured some success, and that will inspire them to keep practicing to get those tricky letters down pat. You will probably need to sit with your child and help them figure out how to do it, but once they figure it out, they will be able to even self check.  It is helpful to have some letter practice that does involve writing.

Great way for a child to study independently October 31, 2008
Reviewer: Susan L. from Costa Mesa, CA  
Wrap-Ups are a great way for a child to study independently. They are useful for reviewing math facts, science, and even music theory. The questions range from very basic to fairly advanced and are easy for even young children to use by themselves. Great for a multi-aged home school and for travel!

Fun and challenging! October 27, 2008
Reviewer: Desiree B. from Orange Beach, AL  
My child found these both fun and challenging.  Great for travel in the car.  I have since passed on to my sister for her children and she loves them too!
