Hello!  My name is Laytora Dash and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.  I have been in Elementary Education since 2007 and at Woodrow Wilson since 2014.  I am originally from South Carolina and have lived in Concord since 2005 with my husband and son.  I believe building strong relationships with my students and their families in order for them to be successful in the classroom.  I am eager to listen and assist with any concerns you may have regarding your child's progress in the classroom.  My door is always open and please feel free to contact me at laytora.dash@kcs.k12.nc.us or call at 704-933-2935.  I look forward to helping your child have a successful school year!

Help your child learn at home:

Try to create a quiet place for your child to study, and carve out time every day when your child can concentrate. You should also try to sit down with your child at least once a week for 15 to 30 minutes while he or she works on homework. This will keep you informed about what your child is working on, and it will help you be the first to know if your child needs help with specific topics. Additionally, here are some activities you can do with your child to support learning at home:


Additional Activities :
* Retell a story through writing by telling what happened first, next, and last.

* Use old and new spelling words to practice writing complete sentences with correct capital letters and punctuation.

*Find a good chapter book to read from your local library.  You can take turns reading with your child to model good fluent reading.  If you find one that has a movie, you can watch the movie as a special treat.  Reading a chapter book together is an easy way to keep your children thinking and acting like readers.  Remember that the discussion piece is key!  Ask and answer questions as you read. Try making predictions to guess what will happen next.  You could even pretend to be the author and change the ending.  (Try Magic Tree House chapter books or A to Z Mysteries; Junie B Jones and Judy Moody are also excellent!)


Wow, this school year flew by!! It is hard to believe that another school year is over. As a parent you might be thinking, what can my child do during the summer to continue his/her growth? The answer is simple: READ! 

-Have students read every day to help keep their reading level up. Also, students can go to the public library and check out books. 

- If you are concerned about math, have students continue to work on their fluency of addition and subtraction facts. 

-Writing, have students write about something that they do during the summer. They can also write about what they are looking forward to next school year.

Below are a few websites your child can use to practice reading and math skills and play instructional games. Some of these websites require your child to log in using the username and password provided by the school. Please monitor your child whenever he/she is using the Internet!
