Some children are more sensitive. It is because she feels making a mistake or failing is very bad. She wants to hear very good all the time. Next time after she cries, sit with her and guide her. When you tell her to stop she will only cry more. So be around her, wait patiently. Then explain that it is perfectly ok to make mistakes. The more one makes the more one learns. Quote the example of Edison the scientist and others. It is normal and ok. What is important is to make attempts to find out why and how one made the mistake and then correct. So daily revision is important. Hug her and praise her efforts. Do not praise her for her smartness or intelligences. Guide her. Tell her you love her. And not just her perfection. Slowly through examples she willcome out of this.
