Talking Points

Talking points is an app used by both teachers and families. It automatically translates messages from English to families' home languages. Families can use standard text messages or the talking points app to respond to messages from teachers.

Here’s how TalkingPoints works. You will receive the message through SMS text or a parent app. You can reply back through either method. You can also reply with an emoji. 😊 Please give it a try!

  • TalkingPoints is free! There’s no charge if you have an unlimited texting plan. If not, standard text messaging fees apply.

  • You can unsubscribe at any time by texting GOODBYE.

  • You can also join my class by downloading the TalkingPoints for Parents Mobile App in the app store on iPhone or Android!
