Montessori and word problem help

I’m working with a young lady who is having tremendous difficulty deciphering word problems.  You know the ones:  A train leaves Los Angles at 3:00 pm; it is traveling 1200 miles/hour for nine hours.  Does it make it to the moon and back or burn up on re-entry?  Anywhoo.

Here is what we’ve done to help for MMcC to be able to translate language to symbol.

Bead Box and Nomenclature Cards

Figuring out if "fewer than" is a subtraction, equals, or addition word.
