Text Slang Inside of the Classroom

Periodic Table of Texting
Most everyone with a phone goes through a phase I like to call text talk. Text Talk is when people use the text slang in real life conversations. For example my brother at eight years old just recently stopped with the text talk. He would always say "Paige, I am just J-K-ing" .
It always drives me crazy when someone reply's with the letter "K" in a text message. There is no point in sending a text if you are not going to really communicate. If you are sending "K" some tips are to actually communicate or say " "bye". "K" can be a good way to stop the person you are texting from replying.People do not know how to answer back from the letter "K". It will put them in a state of confusion and sometimes dissapiontment that you do not answer back to thier text in a nicer way.
