"I agree that if used appropriately apps can be useful in a teacher's classroom. Teachers must gain understanding first on how to use the app before presenting it to the class. Another good app I have used in my classroom is Kahoot! which can be…"

Lynda Way replied to Ruchita Parat's discussion Should kids be given a nap time in school
"According to researches preschool students who napped for an average of 77 minutes had 10% better recall on a memory test that the children who skipped the nap. I think it’s pretty much fair to introduce a short nap interval time in school."

It started when an Indus Valley priest wore a drape like clothing in the early days. Since then, Indian women were seen wearing a single piece of fabric while the top part of the body is partially exposed.

 

The saree is a special kind of fabric about 6 to 9 yards long, enough to wrap around the woman's body…
