This is the week that I'm telling my students about my CI. They are meeting Bionic Buddy, too. I'm reading his story to Kinder, 1st and 2nd and just talking it out with 3rd, 4th and 5th. I'm also doing a sizable pitch on hearing safety and not listening to devices with the volume cranked. While that's not what happened to my hearing, it all gives the same bad result.
It's funny how the different ages react differently to things. The K-2 pretty much gave me the pep-talk on how surgery doesn't really hurt because you sleep right through it. ;) The 3rd-5th were more interested in approving the colors I chose. ;)
