Put the baby in the seat and approach the seat next to the kitchen table. Hold up the vegetable and say:” Green onion”. Show it to the baby and say: “Green onion!” Give the stalk to the baby to have a closer look at it, also to feel its texture between his hands! Take it back and say: As you saw, “green onions” or “scallions” feature long, slender, erect stalk rising above a small, elongated root (bulb) from which multiple straight; hollow, tubular leaves grow. “Green onions” are young shoots of bulb onions, and are milder tasting than large-bulb Onions. The bright green tops and bulb are both edible, and are sold in bunches. Sit next to the baby; put the stalk on the table in front of him. Point to the leaves and say: “Green!”Look at the color!” Green onion’s leaves are green. They are green leaves.”But if you look at the bulb (point to the bulb) it’s white. The bulb is white.” Point to the leaves again, say: “Green onions leaves are long, look how long they are!(move your hand on the leaves to show the baby their length) “long” Green onion is long! Reach out and bring an onion bulb from the kitchen cabinet basket; put the bulb next to the stalk. Point to the bulb and ask: Is this bulb long? Look at it baby! “(pass your hand along the bulb) Say: “No” the bulb is” short” while the stalk is “long”.”Long and short” are opposite words that are used to describe length. Give the green onion stalk back to the baby. Help him approach it to his nose. Say: smell it. Goof! Onion scent is pungent!
