Focusing on what your mouth does while making the sounds does help a lot of kids. I would also consider what you're doing as far as phonemic awareness. I see a lot of kids who confuse those sounds because they can't hear the difference and they need a lot of PA work.

Like the pp said, I also introduce just one new vowel sound at a time for students who really struggle. Since "a" is the most different, I'd practice that for awhile along with the o and u sounds the student already knows. Make sure you are practicing the sounds in isolation as well as in blending/segmenting. Once the "a" is mastered I'd add in the "i" and only add in "e" once the others are mastered.
