    Hello,

    As far as the the word problems go, my students really are struggling with word problems. However, I taught the kids to draw pictures for word problems. sometimes I do the reverse of a word problem. I give them a number sentence (say 8x6), give them a whiteboard, and ask them to draw a picture of what 8x6 looks like, and write their own word problem to it. I have made a list of those "key words", and ask them to use the key words in their problem. They really enjoy being the author of a word problem!
