elementary vs high school writing expectation

In the high schools in our district, students are expected to write narratives (both personal and fiction stories), essays, and informational pieces. In third grade, guess what our students are writing? They are producing narratives (personal and fiction stories), essays, informational pieces, and more! I'd say that Calkins' units are very much aligned to high school's requirements. As an added bonus, our kids love the time of day when they "get" to write. There are a lot worse writing programs out there that your district could have chosen.
