Help your kids brush up on their math facts, states and capitals, and other quick facts this summer with Learning Wrap-Ups. My favorite one is the Multiplication Wrap-Up!

I love these Learning Wrap-Ups. I wanted to share them now because summer is here, and summer is a great time to help your kids catch up on things they struggle with in school. Learning Wrap-Ups are a unique, interactive, hands-on way to practice math facts (and other facts).
I am a math tutor and I love the math bundle shown below; I use them all the time with students who are struggling with their math facts. They are also available individually if you only need one operation (like multiplication).
There are other topics you can get too, like states and capitals and even music theory! You can get them on Amazon HERE.

More than anything, I love the convenience of these wrap-ups and how you can take these anywhere to sneak in some extra learning. They are great for road trips, bedtime routines, summer morning routines, or anytime in between.
A couple years ago we took these on a road trip and had the kids do these in between watching movies. They had to “earn” the next movie by beating their own time.
Last summer I added wrap-ups to one of the kids’ summer morning checklists.
Free Printable to Track Progress
If you have a competitive child, the printable I made is a great motivator. Here’s how it works.
Have your child set a timer to see how long it takes to complete a certain wrap-up. (I recommend doing the same wrap-up 5 times in a row, in one setting).
I have labeled this time sheet using rounds. If they can do the same wrap-up a few times throughout the day (for multiple “rounds,” that would be best, but have them do the same one 5 times each round).
That is really confusing. Let me give you an example.
- Do the “Times 6” multiplication wrap-up 5 times in the morning, and record each time under Round 1.
- Then do the same “Times 6” wrap-up again at lunchtime, and do it 5 times, recording the times in Round 2.
- Then do the “Times 6” wrap-up AGAIN before bedtime. Do it 5 times again, recording the times under Round 3.
- Do this as many times as you want throughout the day!
This will help your child see progress, as well as make REAL PROGRESS!
