I will be modifying all day as an educator, because that is what you call great teaching. I will modify nursery rhymes, games, etc… especially for poetry month for infants and toddlers. To modify is just another name for laymen’s terms. It is fun to modify because you can put a flair that fits the learning habits and teaching personality of the individual.
Before you judge someone try to modify first to see if maybe it is you as an individual that needs to change your ways. Modifying should be a way of life that does not initiate a stigma but promotes learning.
