for($i=5816; $i<=10210; $i++) {
    $directory_name = sprintf("A%05s", $i);

The %05s in the sprintf should do zero padding appropriately, and the 
for loop should do each thing between the two ranges. I'll leave you to 
figure out how to create the directories within the for loop.

(Perhaps a better answer would be to point you to the PHP api :


as I feel a little like I'm helping you cheat with homework....)
