Today’s Lesson: Euphemisms

Todays the girls learned about euphemisms and we had fun learning what that meant.  We discussed “political correctness” and realized that a lot of what we say today can be defined as euphemistic.

After we went through several examples of euphemisms, the girls picked out euphemisms from a set of sentences and then we discussed what each one meant.  The final assignment was to create 5 unique euphemisms.  Here are the best ones from each girl.

  • Deanna – “chronologically-challenged” – late
  • Bailey – “socially inept” – rude
  • Amanda – “cosmetically challenged” – ugly
  • Tashanna – “after-death care provider” – funeral director
  • Gabby – “different enabled” – handicapped
