Alpha Betty and Friends
Grades K - 2

Students join Alpha Betty and her friends as they follow puzzle paths to the playground. Once on the playground, students review early learning skills for each activity they have completed. Program options allow teachers to adjust difficulty levels.
Betty's friends include Pattern Patty, Counting Connie, Lester Less Than, Even Steven, Number Nellie, Add Brad, and Subtraction Jackson. Alpha Betty and her friends each help children master a different early learning skill.

Program Options: For Alpha Betty select uppercase or lowercase letters. A difficulty level option for Betty and several of her friends relates to the complexity of the path, not the difficulty of the content. Difficulty Level 2 will simply have a couple of "dead ends" that children will need to look ahead for when finding the right path to the playground. For Pattern Patty, options allow you to specify patterns which repeat after 2, 3, 4, or 5 steps. You also may create patterns using color only, shape only, or color and shape. For Counting Connie, set options to provide practice in counting by ones (to 20 or 100), twos, fives, or tens. For Lester Less Than, select 2-digit or 3-digit numbers. For Even Steven, have students work with 1, 2, or 3-digit numbers. Set Number Nellie to focus on Addition Facts, Subtraction Facts, or both. Basic fact practice can be specified for facts to 5, to 10, or to 18. You may also set Add Brad and Subtraction Jackson to provide practice of facts to 5, to 10, or to 18.

Options and Easy Track: Set activity options for the whole class all at once or for any selected group or individual.

Student Records: A summary screen provides feedback on student performance for the latest session, last 5 sessions, and cumulative work to date. Scores may be viewed as number right/total, as a percent, or as a letter grade. The child can view the summary as a star chart. Student records may be printed. Open Easy Track for more detailed records. Compare individual records to class, grade level, or selected group averages. Assess graphs of student growth for any specific learning objective. A variety of charts and graphs may be customized and are available for printing.

Easy Track is included with all Micrograms programs.
