Oklahoma State Rep. Pae reads to students at Crosby Park Elementary
LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Crosby Park Elementary students had a special guest read to them Wednesday morning.
As part of Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom and National Read a Book Day, District 62 State Representative Daniel Pae sat with three different grades as part of the special day.
Pae chose three books to read to the youngsters as a way to engage the students by example.
He said with all of the technology kids use in their daily lives, there’s something a little unique about reading from a physical book.
“There’s just something special about having a book in your hands,” said Pae. “When I was a kid at Hugh Bish, I spent a lot of time at the library and I know what it’s like to have one or two different books change your lives forever.”
Pae says after two years of reading to the students as a part of this day.
He hopes the initiative ignites their imagination and increases their critical thinking skills.
