Flocabulary Vocabulary with Digital Flashcards Today we are going to continue to study this week's Flocabulary vocabulary words:
  
campaign / collide / consequence / drastic / elaborate / inevitable / loathe / predicament / provoke / retaliate / sanctuary / siege / subsequent / treacherous / vow

To help you remember the meanings of these words I've created a set of digital flashcards using a program called Quizlet that you can find here, in your Language Arts Google Classroom, as well as below. Please spend some time making sure you understand your words and make sure to study for Friday's quiz.
