Mia(4) started working with the Mental Insets some time ago. Today she decided to add another element to it. She asked me if I would write the name of the shape for her on the paper next to her drawing. The next thing she did was start writing! Mia spelled out the word Mom and then wrote her dad's name.
Just another reason why I love the Metal Insets.
