So here lately we've been trying to do some basic homeschooling with DD1. She's 3.5 this month.
She pretty much knows her ABCs, numbers, shapes, and colors, so I'm working on her tracing her letters so she can get an idea of writing, how the pencil feels in her fingers, etc.
I found a bunch of printables and we've only done the letters A, B, and C. Well, that sounds like there's no issues, but DD takes the pencil, tries to trace, and the minute she can't get it, starts screaming and saying "I CAN'T DO IT!!" and begins scribbling all over the paper, ruining it. To say she's a perfectionist is an understatement, I think.
She's always saying "I can't do it!" (I'm not sure why, really). Is there any way I can continue to encourage her to trace her letters without throwing in the towel immediately? Is it me? Even when she gets CLOSE to the letter, I tell her what an amazing job she's doing. Maybe she would do better in a classroom?
