Hi, I'm teaching all ages, my youngsters being 2 years old, my oldest are ten.
I start the lesson with a Hello Song, then use a handpuppet to great each kid. With the puppet, we play "Simon says" (or any name your puppet has), so the kids can practize the verbs while they run, jump, dance etc.
I use Flashcards after that and teach 5 - 10 FCs in the lesson (or repeat old ones). I then do a lot of games with the Flashcards, like a Flyswat Game, where they have to swat the words I call out, or "What's Missing", or I print the FCs out smaller and play Memory with them.
Just take care with the 3 years old, they need to do some activity where they have to run or jump every ten or so minutes, they cannot sit still so long.
