When I first saw these little wrap-ups I really wanted to get them. I thought they looked like so much fun. Each one has a bunch of addition and subtraction “boards”. What you do is start with the numbers on the left and wrap the cord to the answer on the right. For example; 7 - 1 you would start the cord on the 7 notch and wrap the cord to the 5 notch on the right. If you complete all the problems correctly then when you flip over the board all the lines on the back will be covered by the cord. These are really easy to pack in your bag and take with for the kids to do in the altar or when your waiting at the doctor, etc. I really like that they are very sturdy and the cord isn’t flimsy. These would make a great addition to any classroom or for some extra help if your child needs it. I definitely plan on getting the multiplication and division wrap-ups when I start teaching those concepts.
A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
