Today I started the first grade and met my new teacher Miss Caroline. The day started out all wrong. I got in trouble twice! The first time Miss Caroline talked to me I got into trouble. I already knew how to read and write and apparently that is not a good thing. She told me not to read with Atticus anymore. When it was time for lunch, our teacher wanted to give Walter a quarter for lunch but obviously he didn’t take it because he is a Cunningham. She didn’t understand because she was new to Maycomb. I told her that he is so poor that tomorrow he could not pay her back. I guess she didn’t like that answer because I got in trouble again. I hope tomorrow it won’t be as bad.
