Prime Factorization/Factor Tree’s

Parents/Guardians,

Today in math the kids were introduced to factor string’s! A factor string is a multiplication expression that has at least two factors that are greater than 1. Before I introduced this topic, I wanted to make sure the kids fully understood what a prime a number is. We watched a video of 5th graders learning prime numbers singing to the music of Katy Perry’s “roar.” The kids enjoyed this and were able to sing along. The video link is posted below. Please be sure to watch this tonight with your kids if the kids need assistance with homework, or just for fun. 🙂

Thanks and have a great night!

Ms. Gray
