Faith's Homework

Tonight I felt really stupid.  How do you explain to a child why when they are suppose to spell "an" that its not "and"?  I explained that the two words meant something different.  The thing is at her age she hears by the sound of it not the meaning of the word.  So I had to send that message into the teacher.  I simply don't know how to explain it.

Anyone have any suggestions?  I so need help on this one.

Ran across this blog of yours and found this quite funny. I have absolutely no clue how I would explain this to a child! Luckily, I have quite a few years to think up a reason before my 7 month old son turns 6 or 7 and I have to do some explaining!
