Everything you're wanting/needing CAN be done simply by choosing great books to read, followed by writing topics (either about the book, or creatively in the style of the book). You can teach vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, spelling, and writing mechanics all in one without having to buy one or more curricula if that's how you choose to do it. All of those topics are the next logical step after phonics, and everyone has their own idea about which is the most important and which comes first. Go with whatever works for you.
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
