reading writing spawn-tadpole

Euan announced last week some point that he wanted to read, so the arrival of the frogspawn was great timing. I have biology books stacked n the kitchen the fridge has turned into a whiteboard and Euan has started his first Main Lesson Book (MLB). everything is frogthemed at the moment and the first letter he got to learn was obviously F.
I know that the waldorf purists will fall of their chairs now (or at the very least tut loudly) but this is where I disagree with Steiner. I believe their little souls are firmly in their bodies and each child develops at their own speed
After the F was introduced its was K's turn for Kikker the dutch for frog. he is learning all the different names for the different stages of a frogs life as the spawn develops into tadpoles. and everything in both languages. We have another book on the way from Dk with great step by step pictures.
The entire outside of the house has turned into a chalkboard and I have little letters all over the place.
Willow happily joined in and the letters are joined by sguiggels. Thomas rather eats the chalks
