4/04 This chapter was very exciting Jem and Dill Came closer and Scout begins to feel left out of their friendship. As a result she starts spending alot of her time with one of their neighbors Miss Maudie Atkinson a widow with a talent she love gardening and cake baking she was a friend of Atticus’s brother Jack growing up. She tells Scout that Boo Radley is still alive and it is her guess Boo is the victim of a harsh father a “foot-washing” Baptist who believed that most people are going to hell. Miss Maudie say that Boo was always polite and friendly as a child. She says that most of the rumors about him are not true but that if he wasn’t crazy as a boy he probably is by now.
3/28 Summer comes at last school ends and Dill come back to Maycomb. Him and Scout and Jem begin their games again. One of the first things they do is roll one another inside an old tire. On Scout’s turn, she rolls in front of the Radley steps, and Jem and Scout panic. However this incident gives Jem the idea for their next game they will play “Boo Radley.” When the summer passes their game becomes more complicated, until they are acting out an entire Radley family melodrama. Eventually Atticus catches them and asks if their game has anything to do with the Radleys Jem lies, and Atticus goes back into the house. The kids wonder if it’s safe to play their game anymore.
3/21 The rest of the school year passes grimly for Scout who endures a curriculum that moves too slowly and leaves her constantly frustrated in class. After school one day she passes the Radley Place and sees some tinfoil sticking out of a knothole in one of the Radleys’ oak trees. Scout reaches into the knothole and finds two pieces of chewing gum. She chews both pieces and tells Jem about it. He almost had a heart attack and makes her spit it out. On the last day of school they find two old “Indian-head” pennies hidden in the same knothole where Scout found the gum and decide to keep them.
(4-2-14) Scout is being ignored by her brother Jem and Dill. they always spend their time in the tree house always plotting and planning, they sometime they invite Scout to the tree house only for a third party.Plus, they begins to spend more time with Miss Maudie Atkinson, a neighbor who grew up with Atticus.
Atticus, Scout says, is somewhat older than most of the other fathers in Maycomb. His relatively advanced age often embarrasses his children—he wears glasses and reads, for instance, instead of hunting and fishing like the other men in town. One day, however, a mad dog appears, wandering down the main street toward the Finches’ house. Calpurnia calls Atticus, who returns home with Heck Tate, the sheriff of Maycomb. Heck brings a rifle and asks Atticus to shoot the animal. To Jem and Scout’s amazement, Atticus does so, hitting the dog with his first shot despite his considerable distance from the dog. Later, Miss Maudie tells Jem and Scout that, as a young man, Atticus was the best shot in the county—“One-shot Finch.” Scout is eager to brag about this, but Jem tells her to keep it a secret, because if Atticus wanted them to know, he would have told them.
One night, Francis tells Scout that Dill is a runt and then calls Atticus a “nigger-lover.” Scout curses him and beats him up. Francis tells Alexandra and Uncle Jack that Scout hit him, and Uncle Jack spanks her without hearing her side of the story. After they return to Maycomb, Scout tells Jack what Francis said and Jack becomes furious. Scout makes him promise not to tell Atticus, however, because Atticus had asked her not to fight anyone over what is said about him. Jack promises and keeps his word. Later, Scout overhears Atticus telling Jack that Tom Robinson is innocent but doomed, since it’s inconceivable that an all-white jury would ever acquit him.
