Constitution Day Resources

FYI – I thought fellow homeschoolers would be interested in this. It is from the SC Bar. Charlotte

Celebrate Constitution Day 2020 – September 17th

§  Did you know that the US Department of Education declared that any education institution receiving federal funds must offer lessons on the US Constitution every year for Constitution Day? 

§  Do you have plans for Constitution Day this year?

§  Looking for fun curriculum, lesson plans and games to use in the classroom?

In celebration of our country’s Constitution, the U.S. Department of Education has designated September 17 as annual Constitution Day! The day is intended to prompt any federally funded educational institution to conduct an event of their own design that celebrates the signing of the U.S. Constitution which occurred in 1787. Events or programming can be designed as educators see fit to best emphasize this momentous event with their students. Need a free Constitution Day Pocket Book or a Constitution Day tool kit?  Look no further:

Through participation in Constitution Day, students will increase their basic skills of listening, speaking, writing, reading, problem analysis, and many more attributes to include citizenship and awareness of their Constitution applicable to their daily lives.  Read the Federal Register establishing Constitution Day at

Need Constitution Day Activities and Resources?

Make the most important document in the United States, the Constitution, fun and educational for your students while learning 10 things you didn’t know about the U.S. Constitution or drafting a Class Constitution of their own.

Additional Constitution Day Resources include:

Math Assistant Online Grading for Saxon

From Charlotte –

Hey everyone! I came across this yesterday and am going to give this a try with my family to save time and make my math instruction more effective.

There is a program called My Math Assistant which automatically checks and grades Saxon math. I am going to to give it a try this year. It gives the student immediate feedback on whether they got their problem correct so that they are not practicing incorrectly.

This forces the students to seek help instead of just think “oh ok” and move on… because they don’t have the answer key in front of them to give them a false sense of confidence in their ability to do the problem. For those students who do not check their own work but rely on mom … it keeps them from having the excuse… “mom you didn’t have time to check it, so I couldn’t move on, skipped it etc.”

It grades practice problems, mixed practice and tests. You can customize what students have to complete to move on.

They have a free trial so that you can try it out and the pricing is reasonable. If you participate in Classical Conversations there is a discount for the first three months (message me privately if that applies to you).

Hopefully, if you were interested in one of the classes and the scheduling didn’t work out before – this will give you another option.
