The broad array of materials available from North Star Teacher Resources at
is particularly noteworthy for Christian school teachers with their offerings of inspirational materials. On their site you can find bulletin board sets, packs of bookmarks (good for student gifts), and Spanish-language materials. The drop-down menu on the home page under “Inspirational” lists 17 categories.
Here’s one example: a Bible verse A-Z bulletin board set, which could be used in various ways. http://www.nstresources.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=1570
While much of the generic “character building” material in the general market these days is based on secular, self-actualizing philosophies, some of the inspirational materials offered on North Star are clearly biblical.
As always, choose your materials with discretion.
