Rae (comment #38),
You asked about my book nook rotation chart. The book nooks are changed everyday. After reading workshop each day, a student moves each clip down one spot so that each student will read in a different book nook the following day. (Moving the clips is an assigned daily job on our job chart.) Students check their place on the chart first thing in the morning when they arrive so that they can go immediately to their book nook following the reading mini-lesson.
You also asked what "free choice" meant on the chart. Free choice just means that the student can read anywhere in the classroom, but he or she cannot use a special book nook (couch, dish chair, beanbag, etc.) that has been assigned to another student that day.
I hope I've answered your question! Let me know if this makes sense.
