See You Later Gladiator_Jon Scieszka

Author: Jon Scieszka says, "I write books because I love to make kids laugh".

See You Later, Gladiator!
The Book transports Joe, Sam, and Fred back to ancient Rome A.D. 120. They come face-to-face with one big ol' Gladiator!

Students selected this book after checking out, Tut, Tut, and The Good, the Bad, and the Goofy.
  1. They read chapter one, which took them back into the time warp.
  2. Then listened to chapter one from iTunes.  "It has more action noise, and does the voice emotions, like really!" Shared a student. 
Prior knowledge: They knew Gladiators can earn their freedom. We googled the question and discovered it is true.
