On Friday one of the children noticed that a student in the other Kindergarten class had something behind his ear and wondered what it was. As it happens, the other child is hard of hearing and had hearing aids. This led to a discussion of hearing aids and why they are worn. Ms. Browett, a CEA, was in our class at the time and wears hearing aids herself. She volunteered to tell us about her hearing aids and why she wears them. We also discussed sign language and lip reading. The children were very intrigued by the idea that machines can help others do something we take for granted and had many questions.
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
