Reading Level 3

I am learning to find the correct words to put in to the text, so that it can make sense.
Level 3 - 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. A (2) busy day is beginning.
At the edge of the (3) pond, a little green frog sits on a lily-pad (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 watching (8) for flies. This little frog is hungry for food (9). Someone else is hungry too. A dragonfly hums way (10) above the water. She is a
fierce  hunter, hunting (11) for insects. She hovers near a clump of rocks  (12). She can fly in any direction, even backwards also (13) sideways. Like the frog, she has very big eyes (14). Suddenly she spots a fly crawling up a leaf (15). She swoops down like an arrow and grabs the (16) fly with her powerful front legs. Gripping it
as (17), she munches away at it with her sharp teeth (18) parts. The little frog has seen all this before (19). He turns very slightly. He's ready to pounce,
as (20) he keeps very still. He hopes that the dragonfly (21) will take off towards him
when she's finished eating 22). He hopes she won't notice him sitting
still on (23) green among the pondweed. Soon she flies away (24).
