Hornsby Elementary School in Richmond County, Georgia, has recently cut the ribbon and unveiled its own book vending machine! This addition to the school’s mission to get more kids reading is sure to be exciting and welcome. The book machine was unveiled earlier in the month and should help the school meet its goals.
The book vending machine had been sitting under cover for a few weeks before its unveiling, drawing attention and attempted peeks by the students at what could be underneath. The kids had been so excited about the new technology that they had been asking the staff questions about its showing off.
Students who display positive behavior, have good attendance, and/or hit their reading goals will be given a special Inchy Token to bring to the machine and get a book to keep. Completely free for the students! That way, the kids can start building their home libraries early with books they want to read.
That sure does sound a lot like PBIS!
PBIS? What’s That?
PBIS, or Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, is a rewards system that gives students, well, rewards for displaying positive behavior or achieving academic success, or any other parameter set up. It’s being used by tens of thousands of schools nationwide! Check out our PBIS page to learn more about how Inchy can integrate into your existing PBIS program or be the starting piece for it.
