Trudell, Julie

Hello my name is Julie Trudell Keseday and welcome to my Kindergarten Class!!!

 Room 33

     This is my first year teaching at Grandview Elementary and my sixth year working for Piscataway school district. I previously taught Pre-K at Children's Corner Preschool.

Please leave a message on my voicemail and I will get back to you as soon as possible! If you need to get a message to me immediately, please call the main office.  

    I would like to start off by wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season! I can’t believe that it’s December, and that we are moving into our fifth Magic Tree House book. You will continue to read about Jack and Annie's adventures in your child's chapter summaries that are sent home each week. This month we are going to read  and learn about pirates.  

     In Math we will continue to work on number identification, number writing 1-100, counting, (1's, 5's, 10's) and addition and subtraction using manipulatives. For Science we will continue to take part in hands on science activities. The students will write and draw their predictions and observations throughout each activity.

     For Social Studies we will continue to learn about different cultures and environments through our Magic Tree House stories. The students have really been engaged with the different themes we have read so far (dinosaurs, knights, haunted castles, and Egypt.)  Please remember to not read ahead in The Magic Tree House series at home, as it will interfere with group discussions, making connections, and learning facts.
