Reading work level 3 - On the Frog pond

I am working at level 3.  I am learning to add words to a text to make sense.


On Frog Pond
This task is about adding words to a  text so it makes sense -  This will also show comprehension and understanding of text.


Read the text and put in the correct word.
It's early morning on frog pond. As the sun rises, light sparkles on the water (1).    All sorts of  pond animals are waking up.  The (2) busy day is beginning.
    At the edge of This (3) pond, a little green frog sits on a lilypad (4) in the water. He
is hidden here among The (5) floating plants. He keeps very still and very quiet(6).
His big, bulging eyes are watching. He's watching the(7) dragonflies. He's watching for
slugs and worms. He's searching(8) for flies. This little frog is hungry for flies(9).
    Someone else is hungry too. A dragonfly hums above(10) above the water. She is a fierce
hunter, looking(11) for insects. She hovers near a clump of frogs(12). She can fly in
many direction, even backwards and(13) sideways. Like the frog, she has very
big eyes(14). Suddenly she spots a fly crawling up a lilypad(15). She swoops down
like an arrow and grabs the(16) fly with her powerful front legs. Gripping it
hard(17), she munches away at it with her sharp body(18) parts.
    The little frog has seen all this things(19). He turns very slightly. He's ready to pounce,
off(20) he keeps very still. He hopes that the dragonfly(21) will take off towards him
when she's finished bouncing (22). He hopes she won't notice him sitting
still and (23) green among the pondweed. Soon she flies off(24).
Record your answer here.
