Inchy the Bookworm Vending Machine

First-graders in Nicole Beadnell’s class at Southern Local Elementary earned their first trip to the school’s Inchy the Bookworm Vending Machine for completing a level on the “Teach Your Monster to Read” website. Students work through phonics skills with the program and earn a gold token to receive a free book, and Beadnell said it also encouraged a love of reading. Pictured is student Beau Smith making his selection from the machine.
