He's five, just go out there an have fun. As others before me have stated. Biggest thing at that age is just to keep things fun. Keeping it fun at that age will do alot more for him long term than having proper form.
Think of "games" instead of drills.
Have him stand a bit from the net, you pass him puck, he scores. And vice versa.
Monster chase - have him try to skate past you with or without the puck. Tag without, steal puck with. Side board to side board. Or have him chase you, take turns alternating when the other person is caught.
Tag - chase each other, switch either by touching (no puck) or steal the puck
Follow the leader - stops, turns around dots, etc
