I was having a discussion with David on the way to school this morning. Â We were talking about how some of his friends call him Dave rather than David. Â He was saying that some of them think it is spelt “Dav” when it should really be spelt “Dave”. Â My comment was something about “remember the bossy e” to which i was informed it is not called a “bossy e” it is a “split diagraph”.
David then explained to me about what a diagraph, split diagraph and trigraph were. Â It is rare that he teaches me something new but he did today. Â It is good to see that they are teaching concepts behind reading and writing as well as teaching the base skill.
