Chinese New Year Bulletin Board Set
Chinese New Year in the Classroom
I ordered this for my classroom and was EXTREMELY pleased with the value of the kit. The product description wasn't very detailed, so here is what comes in the kit:
-alphabet (4 of each) and numbers (2 of each)
-banners ("Happy Chinese New Year" "Year of the" and 1 blank)
-gold coin border
-cartoon image of each zodiac animal (approx. 16" tall)
-zodiac chart (approx 25" diameter)
-red lanterns (6" tall)
-fortune cookies with blank fortune paper (2" tall)
-boxes with name of zodiac animal in english and mandarin character (2" tall)
- boxes with characteristic description of zodiac animal and the birth years *NOTE- the year of the snake is incorrect!
- 2 firecracker wall hangings
- pagoda roof (comes in 4 pieces, but when assembled is VERY big)
My only complaint is that the punch outs are fairly flimsy. I ended up laminating most of the items so that I can use them from year to year.

I used this in the kids area of our Chinese New Year Party, and then gave it to a teacher afterwards. We both loved it, especially for the price. It came with tons of stuff!!!!!

My favorite bulletin board set!
I am a full-time Mandarin teacher and Chinese-related classroom items are few and far between in the teacher shopping world. This bulletin board set is a Godsend! There are SO many pieces, so you have a wide range of options for bulletin board ideas. I actually used the roof pieces to decorate my classroom door year-round. One thing that was really disappointing: there are pieces that tell what years go with what animals and one of them is incorrect :\ So if I couldn't use one of them, I didn't want to use any of them. If I remember correctly it was this year, too! The year of the snake. Anyway, still worth it overall.

I really like this bulletin board set. It is bright and colorful. My children ran to look at it as soon as they came in this morning. It has lots of pieces which I love. I wish it was made of sturdier card stock, but otherwise perfect :) It is also very informative.
