(Sorry, this is just a draft; there are no visuals yet, and lots of mistakes!)

Sung to the tune of "Oh What a Beautiful Feeling"

5 is a beautiful number

Think when you multiply 5: All ends in 5 or in Zero...

That's how you know that its right!

Zero times 5 gives you zero,

One times five's naturally five,

5 times 2's 10 -- 1 and Ze-ro!

3 fives 15 -- 1 and 5

4 rows of 5 gives you Twenty (2-0)

5 times itself's Twenty-Five (2-5)

6 groups of 5 gives you 30 (3-0)

7 times 5's 35! (3-5)

8 groups of 5 gives you 40 (4-0)

9 groups of 5: 45 (4-5)

10 groups of 5 gives you Fifty (5-0)

Just Alternate Zeros and Fives!

Even ones end with a Zero (2,4,6,8,10)

Odd numbers end with a Five (1,3,5,7,9)

Learn them and you'll be a hero,

when you can multiply five

Five's products add up in series (0, 5, 1, 6, 2...)

There's always 5 in between (7, 3, 8, 4, 9...)

The first series starts out with zero

The odd one off course starts with 5...

Let me explain somewhat clearer:

Think of 10 -- zero plus 1

you...

then see 15 's 5 plus one: SIX!

20's "2-0" makes 2

"25" adds up to 7

"30" would add up to 3

"35" adds up to 8 and

40 is four, you can see

5 is a beautiful number

There's so much to be done with five

5 is a magical number

Listen, I'll try to describe:

5 x 11's just fifty (5x10) PLUS five times one's 55

5 x 12's easily 60: 5 x 10 plus 5 x 2

5 x 13's al-so easy: 5 x 10 plus 5 x 3

5 x 14 -- just add 20

Now you try 5 x 15!________

5 x 16 start with 50 (5x10)

plus thirty from 5 groups of 6

Add them together, that 80!

Now you are learning some tricks!

17 5's: start with 50

+ (7x5)'s 35

This way you use your addition

to help you when you multiply!

5 x 18: you take 50,

then multiply 5 x 8

50 + 40 make 90;

Some day you won't hesitate!

5 x 19, you add 50

to 5 x 9: that's 45

95 ends up the answer

Odd numbers end always in five

Fi-na-lly we have 5 20's

5 Twenty green dollar bills

5 x 2's 10, plus a zero

That makes one hundred - now drill!

Cause 5 is a beautiful number

Think when you multiply 5 All ends in 5 or in Ze-ro

That's how you know that its right!!
