Now it’s time for children to play. Ask them a question on the multiplication table of 5 and children have to jump to the correct answer for that question.

For Example:

You said what is 5 times 2 i.e 5*2 = 10. Then little ones have to jump into the space of the box with the number 10.  This way they will quickly learn the tables.

Tip 2:

Another best example is teaching children about the table of 10 as it is one of the easier tables in the table series. In this, it just has to add 0’s to the number that is being multiplied by 10.

You can teach little ones that if you half any of the numbers from 10’s table. You will get a 5 times table.

For Examples:

if you asked your child, what is 10 * 2? i.e 20.

For Example:

if you look at a set of blocks with 20 pieces, young ones have to be able to say it’s 5 times 4. i.e 4 sets.

Tip 5:

One of the easy tricks of learning the 5 times table is that it always ends with 0 and 5 where 0 contains the even numbers and 5 contains the odd numbers.
