I work a lot on solving word problems with my students and I will start doing equation writing from those problems with the donut example and having them draw out concrete examples. I need to have them model the word problem with a visual, work with it using a finite number, and then go to the variable version. I also liked how you wrote out what each variable was before writing an equation, that is something I do but need to reemphasize in my teaching.
