Inspired by other learners' posts, i wonder if a good study aid for this hiragana be: a capitalized H (you need to stare a little hard, but no need to stare too hard), the upper part is somewhat shorter than the lower part of this letter H. Then, a lower case a at the lower right bottom. What do you think?

The particle "wa" is written

The particle "wa" is written は, and kono is used a little differently. Kore is what you'd use for that.

So これははしです would be a better way to say it.
