I �ve found that it �s really about repetition.  Show them the object or a picture and have them say the name.  Repeat...  many, many times over many many days and weeks.  Make up different games using the pictures.  It �s really about getting the word into their long term memory. 
After they have the vocabulary, then you can start adding the words to a sentence.  For example,   "Banana.  I like to eat a banana."  Or "Cucumber.  I do not like cucumber." or "Car.  The car is blue." Etc.
