To properly hold a pencil without getting her getting frustrated. She can write a few letters that have hard lines, those she does with a clutched fist around the crayon or pencil. (H, A, E, F, I, L, T, V).
She likes to learn and I want to help her and encourage her. But when I do, she gets frustrated, throwing the pencil down and saying she can't do it. I never force her to try but I would like some new ideas. Thank you.

I wouldn't push the issue either.....but you could try these or even giving super short pencils (that's what they did with my daughter in school) that are about 2 inches long.
