Portfolio Level 4 Reading

Level 4 Close Activity
I am learning to add words to a text so it makes sense at level 4.
The following piece of writing has words missing.
Read the whole piece of writing first to get an idea of what it is about.
Fill in the gaps so that the piece of writing makes sense.
Write only ONE word in each space.
You can cross out and change answers as you go along.


The largest of all flying creatures is the albatross, which can have a wingspan of 3.5 metres.
The bill of this huge seagull is long and powerful.
The albatrosses seagull(1) is the southern oceans of the world(2) where it
may sometimes travel great distances (3). One albatross, found near the Chilean
oceans(4), had a special identification tag fastened on(5) its neck which
had been put on(6) in New Zealand only 12 days earlier.In(7) that
brief time the bird had flew(8) 4800 kilometres, an average of 400 metres(9)
daily – an amazing feat of endurance.
Albatrosses(10) are capable of flying at speeds more(11) than 90 km/h. Their
outstanding ability to fly(12) and glide far better than any
other(13) bird has led to them being named(14)
'the prince of soaring birds'.
They eat(15) mainly on squid, fish, shrimp, and
other(16) creatures that are found near the ocean(17)
of the sea. They also swoop down(18) on scraps thrown overboard from ships.
Also(19) they will follow a ship for many(20) days.
Albatrosses will alight on the ocean(21) surface, but only when it is hot(22).
They visit land in the breeding only(23) for a brief time. Adult birds go(24)
out at sea for two or even(25) three years.

Portfolio Reading Level 3

Level 3
I am able to add words to a text so it makes sense at.
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 a(3) pond, a little green frog sits on a pondweed(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 waiting(8) for flies. This little frog is hungry for food(9).
    Someone else is hungry too. A dragonfly hums quietly(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
any direction, even backwards and(13) sideways. Like the frog, she has very
big eyes(14). Suddenly she spots a fly crawling up a log(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 before(19). He turns very slightly. He's ready to pounce,
so(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).

Portfolio Fraction Level 3

I am learning to work out fraction problems at level 3.


A farmer is selling some of his animals.
1.  The farmer sells ¼ of his 72 cows.  Show hot to work out how many cows did he sell.
18x4=72  10x4=40  8x4=32  40+32=72  1/4=18   



2. He sells ⅓ of his 45 pigs.  Show how to work out how many pigs he sells.
3 x 15 = 45  3x10=30  3x5=15  30+15=45      2/3 of 45 = 30    1/3 = 15   



3.   He sells ⅙ of his 84 sheep.  Show how to work out how many sheep he sells.
14x6=84   10x6=60  4x6=24  24+60=84    84÷14=6     1/6=14      

Portfolio Addition and Subtraction Level 3

I am learning to solve addition and subtraction using compatible at level 3.


Show how you solve these number problems.  


1.  Maraea is saving to buy a cat.  In 3 weeks she has saved $9, $56 and $72.
Show how to work out how much she has saved altogether.
56 + 4 = 60
60 + 70 = 130
2 + 5(left from the 9) = 7
130 + 7 = 137


2.  Tom saves his money each month to buy a dog.  In 4 months he has saved $36, $78, $203, and $123.  Show how to work out how much he has saved altogether.
36+78+203+123=?
200+120=320
80+40=120
120+320+14=440




3.Te Ao is saving to buy a horse.  So far she has saved $17, $160, $72, and $148.  Show how to work out how much she has saved altogether.
17+160+172+148=?
70+20=90
90-5=85
150+160=310
310+85=395


4.  Petelo has $ 147 as a present.  He spent $78 at the shop.  How much has he got left?
147 - 78=?
150-80=70-5=65
