How PocketConnie Works

Developed by a new teacher and an experienced literacy coach, PocketConnie puts high quality conferring support in any teachers pocket. Our web tools and engaging PD help teachers improve their reader analysis and conferring skills.

We do this by also providing assessments, scripts and resources. With PocketConnie even brand new teachers can improve student’s reading engagement with high quality, targeted 1:1 instruction in-person, in distance learning or in a hybrid model. Contact us to learn more

What We Do

We support schools who use independent reading and/or a Reader’s Workshop approach to help build lifelong readers. We know that in a workshop it can be challenging to make sure that all students are engaged and using their independent reading time effectively.

Our conferring tool helps teachers provide targeted 1:1 support to their readers. We help teachers to focus on building student’s reading identity and developing strong reading habits to increase student’s independent reading stamina and engagement.
