The chapter starts up right after Jem had gone to retrieve his pants from Boo Radley's yard. A new school year has started as Scout starts second grade. Since Scout is now in second grade she gets to walk with Jem back home and he finally tells her that when he had retrieved the pants they had already been sewed up where they had torn. Also on the walk home they found a ball of twine in the knot hole where they had found things earlier in. Afterwards in that fall Jem and Scout found two small images carved in soap of themselves. A week after they realized that Boo Radley had made those they found an old spelling bee medal and four days later they found a broken pocket watch on a chain with an aluminum knife. After all of those discoveries Scout and Jem write a letter to the sender only to later find out that someone had filled there knothole with cement making them unable to receive gifts again.
Explains : They were only in second grade and they walked home by them selves , it was probably a small town and they didn’t need to walk for to get home.
Explains: They know and are familiar with the people that live in their small town.

4) “You ain’t grevin’ , Miss Maudie?” I asked, surprised. Atticus said her house was nearly all she had. “Grieving, child? Why, I hated that old cow barn. Thought of settin’ fire to it a hundred times myself, except they’d lock me up.” Page 73
Quotes from Chapter 8
This is the atmosphere because its showing that even know the town is poor and doesn’t have a lot, Atticus help saved what she valued most from the place burning down.
The fire fighters were trying to help save the place and they were trying to put the fire out where she needed it most and they were working there hardest as a team to get it out.
Its showing that Mr. Avery made the right predictions of the weather and the saying that if kids disobeyed there parents the weather would change. The kids felt guilt for changing the weather.
