This product is a combination of Digital Storytime and Digital Bulletin Board. Many elementary librarians have been purchasing both the Digital Storytimes and Digital Bulletin Boards for each weekly theme. Combining them into one product saves you money and time. I’ve covered all grades here, from K-6.

This K-6 library lesson will save you so much time! Everything you need to teach elementary students about Chinese New Year is included here. You only need to add your school’s information to a couple of slides (weekly agenda, birthdays) and a read-aloud of your choice.
