Q. We use graphic organizers now. What makes OMG different?
A. OMG is different from other graphic organizers in that ours are content specific and all of the work has been done for you.

Q. What materials are needed to implement an OMG at my school?
A. To implement OMG, the teacher needs our resource, a 3 prong folder with pockets for each student, glue sticks, and black and white copies on colored paper.
Q. Seems like constructing an OMG is complicated. How will I know where to glue and make the cuts/folds for each of the graphic organizers?
A. The making or our OMG's has been simplified! There is a consistent scheme of cutting on dashed lines and folding on solid lines. A video tutorial for each graphic organizer is provided to guide you in the process. Suggested layouts help you arrange your OMG !
Q. What is the cost per student to make an OMG?
A. After the initial purchase of our guide, the program can be implemented in a class for about $2.00/student.
Q. What format(s) does your product come in?
A. Our products come in two platforms: an online web application and a web application with book combo. Both are intuitively organized by strand and contain the same content.
Q. Why are the web applications less expensive than the web application with book combo? Does it have less content?
A. Web applications are less expensive because we don't have the expense of printing and shipping - thus allowing us to pass the savings on to our teachers. Everything that is in the web application with book combo is also on the web application.
Q. If I buy the web application, does it expire after a certain time?
A. NO! We believe that if someone buys a resource, then they should have access to that resource for as long as they need it. The Web application does not have an expiration date.
