A common question that we receive this time of year is, “How can I help support my child’s Spanish learning over the summer?” Here are some collective suggestions we can offer:

  • The Yolo County Summer Reading Challenge, “All Together Now”, is now until August 15! You can sign up at any public library and can take advantage of this free way to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader. Children will receive a free book and other prizes when they participate. Here’s the link with instructions on how to sign up:
  • Sign up your rising 1st-3rd grader for our CCE Summer Círculo program. We need parent volunteers to support this summer Spanish reading program, so watch for information coming soon about how to help with Spanish book circulation in the summer.
  • Common Sense Media has wonderful media resources for TK-12th grade
  • Looking for audio books and de-books for summer reading? Check out Sora! DJUSD students have access to a large collection of e-books and audio books in both Spanish and English on the Sora website or app. To access Sora, students can log-in via Clever using their DJUSD login and password. Or go to If asked to enter the name of your school, please enter Davis Joint Unified School District. Once logged in, students will be able to “add a library” and select Yolo County library to access the county library Sora collection as well all thorough the same website/app.
