    1. Adult Reads - the adult reads the book to the child. Young children often want a favorite book read again, and again...and again!
    2. Shared Reading - The adult does most of the reading but encourages the child to read any word he/she knows.  "If you see a word you know, just say it!"
    3.  Echo Reading - The adult reads a sentence and then the child reads the same sentence.
    4.  Choral Reading - The adult and the child read the sentences together.
    5.  Paired Reading - The adult and the child read the sentences together, but - at a signal from the child - the adult drops out, coming back in to support the child's reading whenever the child has difficulty. The adult drops back out again at the child's signal.
    6. Partner Reading - The adult and the child take turns reading a paragraph and/or a page.  This can be done in any type of book - a picture book, a simple book, or a chapter book.
    7.  Child Reads - The child reads the book to the adult.
