Practicing with 3-D Letters

Yesterday morning a little Kindergarten girl and I practiced making letters the 2-D and 3-D way.  I vote for 3-D.
 I would have used 4 long strips to make each "M" but there weren't enough to go 'round.
Also didn't have any circle/half circle shapes handy so we used my articulated ruler, which she adored.  You can guess the letter she made, right?
This sweetie usually crushes her thumb against the pencil in a tight, lateral pinch.  This hand position is very difficult for her to maintain, especially keeping that nice "O" in the thumb-web space.  But, it is important for the fine movements needed during writing.
