#FlannelFriday: Hot Air Balloons

These hot air balloons will be my constant companions during the Summer Reading Program. I plan to use them to create interest in the upcoming story times and remind the children where we've already traveled to. I'm still working on my "Where We've Been, Where We're Going" Hot Air Balloon Flannel Board Story. It's going to be pretty simple--mention the countries and the things we'll do while we're there. We're starting the summer off in North Carolina and the United States. From there we're going around the world.

Week 2: Mexico

Week 3: The UK--England, Scotland, Ireland

Week 4: France & Italy

Week 5: Africa

Week 6: India

Week 7: China & Japan

Week 8: Australia

This same idea could be adapted to suit any countries. Instead of hot air balloons, you could use airplanes, boats, even cars.
