## Instruction

This lesson emphasizes the use of multiples to learn the times 5 facts. Students are shown the familiar pattern of the multiples of five ending in zero or 5. A number sort picking out the multiples of 5 reinforces the students' understanding of this. This is followed by a discussion about how the product of 1 × 5 is the first multiple of 5. A matching activity helps to strengthen this skill. Next, students are taught a strategy-based on the idea that 5 is half of ten. For example, 10 × 4= 40. Half of 10 is 5, so 4 × 5 =half of 40, or 20. Finally, students are provided a practice session using a number generator that generates a multiple of 5 to which they provide a multiplication fact. The goal is to list 11 times 5 multiplication facts.
