We did lots of sorting pictures into categories by beginning sounds, and played matching games where they created a match by finding two pictures with the same initial sound. We also used lots of physical cues to help them stretch out the beginning sounds, or to hear the sort of "explosive" air sounds (like /p/). The movements seemed to help them hear the sounds more easily. They really liked it when they thought we were trying to trick them - they were proud of themselves for "not getting tricked," as they put it. I think the small groups (4, max) and beginning with just a couple of sounds, then adding other sounds, 1 or 2 per week, were key.
