Since she is eager to learn letters, any tips on a good way to teach that? She can trace mine perfectly but freestyle, it doesn't come out the way she wants it to. Then she throws the pen and says she can't do it.
I talked to her about how when I was a little girl, it took me a long time to learn letters. She seemed interested in that. I told her a lot of times when you learn something new, you make mistakes or don't get it at first and that's why we practice. I think she heard me.
Any specific ideas on the frustration? I remember taking golf lessons with a friend and I was happy to practice, didn't care if I messed up, while my friend got frustrated on the first day of a new lesson. Is this just personality type? Can I help her learn to be more patient with herself? I admit that I have put things away that frustrated her because I don't like being hit by flying objects (wooden puzzle pieces in particular.) But when she asks to learn something, I want to help her.
