Don't feel that every lesson needs to address every formal goal.
If you use a variety of materials and activities, they should all be
covered eventually.  Ask the Speech therapists in your system for
help. Cooking, books with tape soundtracks, small instruments that you
can hide and make noise with for figure ground activities, are all
good places to start. See if you can borrow books with rhymes and
fingerplays like "Where is Thumbkin", for example.
The less formal and more interactive your lessons are, the better.
Remember, you are teaching them normal skills that are used in
everyday language, so use the language to teach them.
Best of luck,
