Hey there, bookworms! Ballard Elementary School has an innovative approach to encouraging reading and good behavior. Say hello to the Inchy’s Bookworm Book Vending Machine – a literary phenomenon that’s got everyone buzzing!
Rewarding Good Vibes with Prizes Galore
Ballard Elementary School is all about nurturing good student behavior. And they’re doing it with style. When students demonstrate outstanding behavior, they earn an Inchy token. Students can use the token to vend a brand new book.
Principal Shabazz’s Excitement Overload
Principal Jennifer Shabazz can’t contain her excitement: “They’re so excited! It’s all lit up. Students already know what book they want before they go up to it.” She emphasizes that it’s all about the joy of reading. Age doesn’t matter; if you’re intrigued by a book, it’s a win!
Viking of the Week: The Ultimate Prize
Imagine being named “Viking of the Week.” The title alone is exhilarating! Teachers from 28 classes keep tabs on their students’ good deeds. At the end of the week they select a lucky Viking. And guess what? They get to pick a prize! Yep, you guessed it. One of the options is a book from Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine.
Thousands of Age-Appropriate Books
Ballard Elementary School knows their stuff! They’ve stocked up on over 3,000 books for their vending machine. All titles are carefully chosen to suit the elementary school audience. From books boys and girls adore to sports adventures, they’ve got it all covered!
