Try the following:

Step 5. Then move on to segments of two, three or four words like "at home, going to school, singing in class"

Step 7. Pick the words from two to three units now.
Step 8. Pick the words from all the units you have covered with them.
Step 9. More fun. See if they are smart. Say a word or sentence that does not exist in any unit of their course book and see how quick they can find out.
