TpT - should I buy??

I will be starting Writer's Workshop next year for the first time. I was given the Lucy Calkins Units of Study for Grade 1 and am finding this very time-consuming study for my precious summer! I've been looking at Deanna Jump's all-inclusive "Writing Through the Year" packet which looks great for a newbie like me to use instead of reading through all of this information from Lucy Calkins. Would you spend the $60 on TpT for the ready-made packets? Does anybody have experience with this packet from Deanna Jump to be able to advise me whether or not to use it as my "go to" for planning next year? Thanks in advance.

I too was struggling with writing and trying to find a way to teach writing to my students that they would both love and understand. I found this one on TPT and loved it. It is by Anna Brantley and has three different downloads of writing through out the year. I have all three and used them all through out the year. My students loved them. I have to tell you that Deanna Jumps looks pretty amazing as well. Just thought I would give you another choice. Hope this helps.

Go to The Rose Room and look for the Units of Study there.
