Welcome to my Bingo for Patriots site! This site, which has grown to more than 500 pages, is all about celebrating America and learning about the founding of this exceptional nation! The Founding is filled with fascinating individuals, information, and documents! I am writing books, as well as creating games, learning tools and products to help everyone learn about the Founders and our Founding Documents. It is in those documents, as well as other writings of our Founders, that the need for a limited governmental structure and the assurance of individual liberties become clear. I further believe that we must teach ourselves and our children about the treasures, traditions, and exceptional nature of our country. These ideas are seldom taught in schools. Consequently, our national identity and pride in all that is good about America is not being passed on to the next generation. It has become my passion to teach others about this wonderful country, as well as to aid in the restoration of the United States of America to its roots as a true constitutional republic.

Should you expand your knowledge base about the Founding and our Founding Documents? Do your children need to learn more than they are being taught in during the course of their education? Here are a few questions for your to consider:

* What do you remember from your primary and high school education about the Founding of the United States of America? Were you required to take a US History course in college? Are your children learning what you were taught or merely the snippets of information that are necessary to answer questions on standardized tests? Are they required to read primary sources, or do they rely upon their teachers and text books to interpret our history for them?

* Have your children been asked to completely read the  Declaration of Independence or the entire Constitution during the course of their education? When was the last time you read the Founding Documents of our nation? Can you have a cogent discussion with them about the contents of these documents, as well as the principles contained therein?

* Did you know some educators think it is “controversial” to teach young Americans to be patriotic? Do your children recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school or even know the words to the “Star Spangled Banner?” Are your children proud to be  citizens of our great nation? What have they been taught about civic responsibility?

* Are there Thanksgiving celebrations at the public school your children attend? Do your children know when to celebrate Constitution Day, George Washington’s Birthday, or Flag Day? Have you or your children even heard of “Honoring America Days?” It is actually a part of the US Code! 

Although there are some teachers who go the extra mile to teach about this subject, US history receives limited attention in most classrooms. There is no time for students to delve into primary source tools such as our Founding Documents. Please click on the “What Does Your Child Know About Thomas Jefferson” link in the left column to read about inspired me to focus on this subject.

Have you ever read the Declaration of Independence? Most of us read it in elementary school, or perhaps in high school, but the words from the Declaration have long since faded from our memory. This Founding Document not only lists the colonists’ grievances against King George III, but it is an emotional document. Reading it line by line will help you get in touch with the anger that was felt by its signers.

This game breaks the text of the Declaration of Independence into more than 50 segments. The beginning of each segment is contained in the squares. As you play the game, reference the number that is highlighted in red on the accompanying copy of the Declaration. Click on the image to be taken to the order game. This is a 10 card game that is printable for just $1.76!
