1. Describe Miss Maudie Atkinson? How typical is she of Maycomb's women? What do the children think of her?
Miss Maudie Atkinson is very kind to Jem and Scout. She always makes them pies and lets them play in her yard if they stay away fom her flowers. She is a strong religous women and is very nice and thinks things throurly. The children think she is very nice because she talks to them all the time and gives them good advice.
2. What does Miss Maudie tell Scout about Boo? How does this compare with what Scout already believes?
Miss Maudie tells Scout that "Boo" is a really nice perdon and that he is still alive. He just doesn't like to socialze with other people. This is totally different from wat Scout thaought. She thought he was an old rotten man who ate cat.
3. Scout claims that “Dill could tell the biggest ones ” (lies) she ever heard. Why might Dill have told such lies?
Dill probably told lies becasue he didn't want people to know how his home life was. Also probably because he didn't want people to make fun of him because he doesn't have a father.
4. What reasons does Atticus give for the children not to play the Boo Radley game? Do you think he is right? Why?
Atticus says that the children shouldn't play the Boo Radley game because it was rude and they just didn't need to be playing that game. Also he thought it would hurt his feelings because it was making fun of Boo. Yes i think Atticus is right because it is rude to play a game about someone you don't know. Also it will amke him feel like no one likes him if he found out they were playing a game about him.

1.) “Miss Maudie hated her house: time spent indoors was time wasted.” Miss Maudie Atkinson is a widow. She works in her flowers to pass the time. She loved everything that grew form the earth. She is a typical women of Maycomb because she works in her flower bed and talks to the children. The children though she was nice they like her very much.

2.) “His name’s Arthur and he’s still alive” Miss Maudie tells scout that Boo is alive. She told scout this because she said that she has never seen him be carried out. This compared to what Scout already believes because now this kind of supports that he thinks that he is alive.

3.) “Dill Harris could tell the biggest ones I ever heard” Dill told perhaps told lies because he dint wasn’t people to know his live back at home. He is maybe embarrass because he doesn’t know what his dad really does. Also because his mom always work because he has no money.

4.) “You stop this nonsense right now, every one of you” The reason that Atticus for why he told the children not to play the Boo Radley game was that they shouldn’t make fun of his life. Yes I think that Atticus is right. It wasn’t right for the children to “experience again” the story. That was Boo’s personal life.

1)Miss Maudie Atkinson is a nice person.The children though she was nice they like her very much because she let them play in her yard. She also talked to them and gave them advice.She is a widow and she is very religious.
2)Miss Maudie Ankinson told scout that boo is a good person who just doesn't like to interact with people.This is very different than what she thought before because she thought boo was dead and that he was a bad and mean person.
3)I think that he lies because he is ashamed of the way he lives and doesn't want people to make fun of him or feel bad for him.
4)Atticus tells the children that it isn't nice to play a game about someone elses life because he might think you are making fun of him and that you dont like him.I think he is right in telling them this.They really should not play a game about his life because they dont really know what went on in his life.

1.Miss Maudie is a woman who lives in the neighborhood of the Finchs’. ”Miss Maudie hated her house,” so she was usually on her porch. She let the children play in her yard if they didn’t get into her flowers, and they never really talked to her until Dill and Jem stopped letting Scout play with them. She isn’t a typical Maycomb woman, considering that she gardens in mens overalls. The children are very fond of her because she lets them play in her yard and eat her scuppernongs.

2. Miss Maudie tells Scout that Mr. Radley is alive, and that he just stays in his house all the time because he wants to. Scout finds this hard to believe because of all the other stories she has heard over and over. She always thought there was some big eventful story to why he was such a hermit.
3. Dill most likely tells Scout and Jem these crazy lies because he has nothing to tell them at all. Most kids who don’t have a lot try and say things to other people to make them feel better about themselves.
4. Atticus gives very good reasons for the kids not to play their “Boo” game anymore. He says that its rude and embarrassing to Mr. Radley, and he’s totally right. He doesn’t want his kids and his self to get embarrassed by their game.

1. Describe Miss Maudie Atkinson? How typical is she of Maycomb's women? What do the children think of her?
Miss Maudie Atkinson is a widow who was childhood friends with jack. She is very nice to jem and scout and lets them play in her yard

2. What does Miss Maudie tell Scout about Boo? How does this compare with what Scout already believes?
She tells Scout that Boo was probably the victim of an abusive dad and probably now is crazy. This compares to Scout ideas as she already thought he was crazy.


3. Scout claims that “Dill could tell the biggest ones ” (lies) she ever heard. Why might Dill have told such lies?
Dill lied to make up for the fact that his dad wasnt around for him as a child and tells people what he wished his dad actually was.

4. What reasons does Atticus give for the children not to play the Boo Radley game? Do you think he is right? Why?
Atticus tells them not not play the game becasue it is unacceptable to make fun of someone and if he found out that it would hurt Boo's fellings. Yes i agree with him that it was rude and they shouldnt play it.

1) Miss Maudie is a kind woman she is a widow. Scout and Jem like her very much she lets them play in her yard and bakes them pies.

2)Miss Maudie tells Scout that Boo Radley is still alive. But the reason he doesn't come out is because he doesn't like to talk to people.

3) Maybe the reason Dill told so many lies was because he was embaressed of his own life. Dill probly didn't want people to know about him and the way he lived.

4) Atticus tells the kids that it is rude to play the game. The reason is because it's not nice to make fun of other people and it would hurt his feelings.I personally think this is rude I wouldn't want anyone to make fn of me and the way I have lived my life and the things I have been through.

1.Miss Maudie Atikson was a typical Maycomb woman, in the ways she went about things. She stayed on her porch most the time watching everything that went on around her. The children liked her, and thought of her as a friend. Miss Maudie treated them as friends, and never told on them, minding her own business.

2.Miss maudie told Scout that Boo Radley was still alive. She also said that Boo Radleys real name was Mr. Arthur.


3.Scout said Dill told the biggest lies she ever head. The reason Dill might be telling lies was so he would make a bigger impression, to make himself look cool. Another reason he might be telling the lies was to feel important or to feel like he belonged.

4.Atticus said that they should not play the Boo Radley game. The reasons he gave for saying that was because they might be bothering Boo Radley. He felt if Boo Radley wanted to come out, he would do so.

1)miss maudie seems to be a kind woman who is not a religous fanantic But practiecs her religin moderately. She tries to explain boo - raidely and his brother to scout to Scout she also trys to give scout advice about the world around her just to give her more in sight .

2)Miss maudie says boos a nice guy and that his brother is just a foot washer . a person that is religously fanantic.This is a tollaty differnt point of view of what scout thought before .

3)Dill tells lies because he wants to hide his real life. He most likely dosent even have a father .

4)Atticus thinks it would be rude.
It also means the kids really dont understand the situwation.

Chapter 5

1.) She is most likely the typical Maycomb's county woman. She is a stereotypical person and believed in the rumors about Boo-Radley. She might of added on to the story herself becaus eshe seems like the person who loves to gossip.

2.) She tells Scout and the boys even more mysterious rumors about "Boo" and just adds on to their beliefs about him. She makes them actually more scared of the Radley House.

3.) Dill Might tell all those lies because he might be ashamed about his own life. He might not be having such a wonderful life as he says he does. He might actually just be neglected by his parents back home, but lies about it to Jem and Scout so he could fit in with them.

4.) Atticus tells them to stop because he thinks it is very rude and if one of the Radley's were to see them playing that game they would get very mad.
