The frog Pond

I am learning to add words to a text so it  makes 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. A (2) busy day is beginning. At the edge of The (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 looking(8) for flies. This little frog is hungry for flies(9).  Someone else is hungry too. A dragonfly hums high (10) above the water. She is a fierce hunter, looking(11) for insects. She hovers near a clump of leaves(12). She can fly in any direction, even backwards and.(13) sideways. Like the frog, she has very big legs(14). Suddenly she spots a fly crawling up a rock(15). She swoops down like an arrow and grabs the(16) fly with her powerful front legs. Gripping it tightly(17), she munches away at it with her sharp body(18) parts. The little frog has seen all this alone(19). He turns very slightly. He's ready to pounce, but (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,very(23) green among the pondweed. Soon she flies off(24).
