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.

Call: 732-752-2501 x5761

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.  

We will continue to work in 2 centers a day during the Literacy Block. I will also be pulling small groups to work on specific literacy skills and guided reading.  You will continue to read about Jack and Annie's adventures in your child's weekly chapter summaries. In addition, the students will be creating their own books, writing silly sentences, working on their word family and sight word identification, and so much more!  

Please continue to read and complete the weekly Book Club activity. This will help your child with their reading and comprehension skills.

     In Math we will continue to work on number identification, number writing 1-200, counting, (1's, 2's, 5's, 10's), addition and subtraction using manipulatives, and place value using ten frames. We will also continue to work on measurement and money. In 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, Egypt, and Japan.)  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.
