Speckled? sparkled? same difference

Master:  We read a book (in school) but I don't remember what happened in it.

Me:  That's ok.  Did you do a project?

Master:  Yeah we made frogs

Me:  Wow frogs

Master:  Yeah they were sparkled frogs.

Me:  huh?

Master:  Sparkled frogs and they ate the most delicious bugs

Me:  laughing to myself  You mean they were speckled? singing Five green and speckled frogs, sat on a speckled log eating the most delicious bugs - yum yum!  One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool, now there are four green speckled frogs.

Master:  That's how it went!!!!  

That is actually a pretty popular preschool song but Master was so amazed that I knew the song/book.

And because he always has to have the last work and is always right:

Master:  Ya know, speckled kinda sounds like sparkled.

I have never heard that song in my life:) Pre-school has come a long way since the early 80's.
