Flocabulary Vocabulary and the 100 Word Challenge



Flocabulary Vocabulary  Welcome to Unit 4 of Flocabulary's vocabulary program, which features the 'Ballad of Ron and John.' With Ron and John's battle as the backdrop, we have a new set of words to interact with, learn, and hopefully begin to incorporate into our own vocabulary. This week's words are: 

campaign / collide / consequence / drastic / elaborate / inevitable / loathe / predicament / provoke / retaliate / sanctuary / siege / subsequent / treacherous / vow

After watching and interacting with the video and song a couple of times, study the words and their meanings and work on the activity Vocabulary - Unit 4 (The Ballad of Ron and John) - Fix the Mistake, which can be found in your Language Arts Google Classroom
