I'm not completely sure what you're asking, but if you're interested in finding an open and go program to teach writing that *actually works* and requires *very little energy on your part* the answer is that there isn't such a thing.

Depends on the student, I'd say, and their age, and etc.

 

I don't know what "No More I'm Done" is, but I find that WWS requires very little energy on my part for my 12 year old.  

 

There isn't a writing program in the universe that requires very little energy for my 9 year old, though, because it has to not only be something I am directly involved in (otherwise he won't be interested) but something I can talk him into thinking isn't actually schoolwork.

I used it with my first two. 

Yes. it is 100% no prep, open and go. Super easy. 

It is intended for very young children. k-2. We don't do original writing at such a young age and I didn't realize that it was a bit too young for them. But I did love the method for new writers. There is a similar book for older children, but I didn't get it and made No More! I'm done work for us.

Thank you everyone.

 

I was reading reviews and they all gushed over the philosophy behind the book's approach, and mentioned there was an outline of "mini lessons" for a school year. I wanted to make sure these lessons were something I could simply open and read and start on with just paper and pencil. I don't want to have to think of prompts or collect poster board most of the time.

The lessons are very friendly for "open and go" work, the one exception being that you will want to have the readings that are referenced in each lesson available before you begin. Most are picture books and were either ones we owned or ones that were available at the library, and some of them could work with substitutions.
