I was looking for some books that used the Learning Wrap Ups and a lady had posted a book review on one stating that they made their own wrap ups from paint stirring sticks.  I did a search on the web but couldn't find anything.  I know it is simple but I would like to know exactly how they did it.  Any one ever done this or have seen instructions how to?  Thanks

That sounds like a challenge.  If I had some paint sticks, I'd try it right now.

 

I'm guessing you can write numbers on left and right side of stick.  At the numbers, make a little notch for the yarn.  Attach the yarn at the top, either drill a hole and go through, or just tie it around the skinnier part. After you get it all assembled, work the puzzle and make sure you have the right answers.  Then mark the lines across the back.

Anyone else have any suggestions, I may have to go to lowe's and get some sticks.

WE have some wrap-ups and my kids love them.  That sounds like a clever way to make them exactly how you want them!

We have addition and multiplication wrap-ups.

Paint Sticks!  What a great idea.  A person could do foreign lang, states and capitals, Periodic chemistry table, Matching shapes, etc.

I have made some with cardboard but paint sticks would be sturdier. you just cut the notches in each side attach your string at the top around a brad. I put pictures of small objects on the left  side by each notch and the words on the right by the notches.  kids just wrap the string around the card from one to the matching one on the other side. Hope that explaines it.

ok, after looking up online what a wrap up is and seeing an animated video, I understand how the math wrap up works now! lol

Question  is, how would you use wrap ups for other subjects? I can get alot of paint sticks:)

Someone mentioned you could use it to match colors to their names, shapes to their names or alike shapes,... If you write small enough you could do word questions and answers.

You could make one that you connected the numbers or the alphabet.
