While they're waiting for school to start, Jem is telling Scout that he doesn't want her to talk to him during the school day.
"You tell your father to not teach you anymore. It's best to begin reading with a fresh mind."
"He didn't teach me!"
Scout is very excited to start her first day of school
Scout arrives in her classroom and meets her teacher, Miss Caroline Fisher.
Miss Caroline finds out that Scout can read, and assumes that Atticus taught her. She then forbids her from reading with him.
Lunch time was coming around & Miss Caroline noticed that Walter Cunningham didn't have a lunch, so she offered to give him a quarter, but he denied it every time. So Scout had to explain to her his situation.
"He's a Cunningham."
After Scout explained to Miss Caroline what she meant by him being a Cunningham, Miss Caroline thought that Scout has trying to be funny & make jokes about Walter. She made Scout hold her hand, and she patted her hand with a ruler 12 times. The class starts laughing & Miss Caroline sends Scout to the corner. When the class leaves for lunch, Scout notices Miss Caroline put her head down into her arms.
