You've already gotten one good suggestion. I am no expert on this, but I would also suggest considering the possibility of mild dyslexia. It may be worth at least a screening if this problem persists. She sounds like she is getting very frustrated with reading things that you would not have expected to be a challenge for her, and that frustration is spilling over into academics in general. Sometimes mild dyslexia can be very difficult to identify.

But like I said, I am no expert, it is just the first thing that came to mind.
