THE LETTER "H" in Hieroglyphics

Today's hieroglyphic is the letter "H"

Zet: "It's time to do the letter H. Are you ready, little sister?"
Kat: "I'm way ahead of you. I already have my brushes out!"

Letter H in hieroglyphics
H = House
Kat says: "The first symbol for the Letter H is the symbol for a house or dwelling.
(notice the entryway, and the room to the right.)
It's pronounced as "H" like in HOUSE."

REMEMBER KEY: 
HOUSE starts with H, and the 
word house also describes this symbol.

WRITE YOUR NAME:
The house can be used for the H in names like 
Henry, Harry and Hisham,
Helen, Honor, and Haeley.

H = Wick
Kat says: "The second symbol for the Letter H is the symbol for a candle wick. 
It's pronounced "H" like in HOUSE" -- exactly the same way as the first symbol. 
The two symbols can be interchanged.
Choose whichever symbol looks best for your word.

REMEMBER KEY: 
HOT starts with H, and a candle wick is HOT when it's lit and burning

WRITE YOUR NAME:
The wick can be used for the H in names like 
Hector, Hal, and Hunter,
Harriet, Hope, and Hannah.
