When you finish making 5 stitches into 1 stitch you will have the 5 loops from the made stitches on your right needle. You would keep the loop closest to the tip of right needle and pass the 4 behind it over the first one. I think it would be fine to pass them one at a time starting with the 2nd stitch, then 3rd etc.
