Ok ladies, I'm in need of a writing curriculum, preferably something based on creativity. 

Any ideas on workbooks, websites, etc?

Ive heard of Handwriting without Tears (might be slightly off on the name but I think it's right). Im going to be buying Institute for Excellence in Writing and their Zoo Phonics program. It looks like it will be the best fit for my auditory learner.

Are you looking for handwriting and mechanics or more writing composition?

I've got The Writer's Jungle (Brave Writer). It's more of a guide for the parent on how to teach writing than a curriculum for the child. It's a very enlightening way to look at the writing process. I need all the help I can get for writing class. I'm mixing it in with Essentials In Writing and Writing With Ease for next year (5th grade). We have used WWE before for dictation and copywork.
