The Lucy Calkin Writing Program is based on units of study. It has Unit books that go along with it that give mini lessons for the unit being studies. The set also has a CD with many valuable resources on it. It has the paper that you use for each unit. I love the program because it is so well organized.
Our county has instructors who come from NYC and Columbia University to lead workshops. Probably the only thing that I miss is the creative writing element. Lucy Calkin focuses on writing about real events in the lives of the children. I am trying to work in creative or make-believe writing opportunities through center time.
I think that you will like the Lucy Calkin writing program.
