We've done writers workshop a la Lucy Calkins for years. We
ordered the K-2 Units of Study several years ago and I
reference them often. Since they are K-2, not just K, you have
to use your own experience and adapt. But, also, in the past
several years you can purchase what we call "Lucy e-docs". We
bought them a couple of years ago for $10 (they also have them
for readers workshop). I assume they're still on sale - you
can probably google or search the Teachers College Writing
Project in NY to find them. They are specifically for
kindergarten and are a very good guideline.
I love all of Lucy's research in reading and writing and think
it's very developmentally appropriate for our kindergarten
children if done right.
