My 4.5 y.o loves being read to... but is very resistant to learning letters. (most of them, anyway). Another mommy gave me an idea to do coloring pages with something he absolutely loves.<br><br>
Can you help me fill in the alphabet with really cool car words?? I am totally drawing a blank. (I don't know if this has already been done, I didn't find anything useful on google).<br><br><br><br><br>
A<br>
B<br>
C = Corvette<br>
D<br>
E<br>
F = Ferrari<br>
G<br>
H<br>
I<br>
J<br>
K<br>
L<br>
M = Monster Truck<br>
N<br>
O<br>
P<br>
Q<br>
R = Race car<br>
S<br>
T<br>
U<br>
V<br>

Umm, totally not my area of expertise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">, but here are a few of my ideas....<br><br>
Ambulance, Beetle, Dragster, Engine, Gas, Horsepower, Jaguar, Nascar, Pit stop (Police car?), Speedway, Tow truck, Volkswagen ...<br><br>

One book I have and one book we've borrowed from the library come to mind. Richard Scarry has a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FRichard-Scarrys-Cars-Trucks-Chunky%2Fdp%2F0679806636%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1273034062%26sr%3D1-2" target="_blank">cars ABC book</a> that has things like "pickle car" and "yogurt car" and the kids think it is really funny. We borrowed a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FRacecar-Alphabet-Notable-Childrens-Younger%2Fdp%2F0689850913%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1273033889%26sr%3D8-1" target="_blank">Racecar Alphabet</a> from the library that my DS really enjoyed.<br><br>
Looking for the links at amazon I see another <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FNASCAR-ABCs-Paul-DuBois-Jacobs%2Fdp%2F142360119X%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1273033889%26sr%3D8-2" target="_blank">Nascar ABC book</a>.<br><br>
So not that you can't make up your own, but if you want some ready-mades...<br><br>

ETA: Sorry, those aren't useful for coloring pages really, but they might promote your cause of learning letters and reading together!

Iindy 500<br>

T train, tow truck, trophy, train tracks, tire man<br>
U<br>

X x-ray <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Y<br>
Z zamboni, zap around the track<br>
(DS likes trains and is suggesting those; he also says, "What should I be for? It should be for injuries.")<br><br>
And I second the idea to try alphabet books. DS liked (still likes) Z is for Zamboni; there's a whole series. If you make up your own, try to use the hard consonants (c=k) and short vowels.<br><br>
You could also make a photo alphabet book with pictures of him (J = Jump).<br><br>

How Disney/Character is your family? Cause you could come up with all sorts of stuff with the Cars movie. L could be Lightning McQueen, M could be Mater, R could be Route 66. And coloring pages would be easy to find on line, just do a little photoshopping to add the letters.<br><br>
You could also do Indy 500 for I, Daytona 500 for D, NASCAR for N, Helmet for H, Pit Crew for P.<br><br>
There's also car parts-Tire for T, Bumper for B, Steering Wheel for S, Door for D, Windshield for W, Engine for E.
