Lucky Calkins Kindergarten

Currently we use Kid Writing to teach writing to our K kids. Next year we are also going to use Lucy Calkins for K-2.

Does anyone else use this? Any helpful suggestions to get me ready for next year?

Thanks so much!

Years ago, I used Kid Writing in kindergarten. I really liked it, but this year I returned to kindergarten after using Lucy Calkins in first grade and wanted to try it out with kindergartners. The most useful thing for me was the curriculum plan that I purchased for $10 from Heinemann (the publisher of Units of Study). It really showed me how to adapt the program to kindergarten including some units that were not in the books. I had a great year. In some ways, it was easier for me than Kid Writing, because I do not feel that I have to make it around to every child as often. Also, I like the organization of different units.

Here is a link to the curriculular plan available from heinemann. Just take out the spaces.

If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to try to answer them, but I'm not at all an expert....I've just done it one year.
