1. Topic(s) that students learned (Brief description of the math class) and related Standards (CCSS-M)
For the past four weeks the third grade students in Ms. Vazquez have been working on a fraction unit. Today the students were
working on completing a four-page worksheet. The students are comparing fractions. The following Common Core State Standards
were observed during the lesson.

2. Description of the students (Strengths and weakness of the students in the class regarding the topic they studied during the class)
Theclasswassetupwitheightcirculartables. This third grade class had 35 students. From observing the classroom and the
communication that was taking place, this class would be considered a bilingual third grade class. There are three students that only
speak Spanish but all the class speaks and understands Spanish. The majority of all the posters hung around the classroom whether
they were math or another subject were written in both English and Spanish.
