Sequencing of 'To Kill a Mockingbird'?

I'm writing a diary from Scout's point of view of ten important things that happened to her in the story. I picked ten and I have to put them in order of when they happened. I also have to make up a date of when they may have happened. Is this the correct order and do the months sound believable?

1. Mr. Cunningham brings the Finches hickory nuts. (1st Year July)

2. First day of school. (1st Year September)

3. Mrs. Maudie's house burns down. (2nd Year January)

4. The kids start the "Boo Radley Game." (2nd Year May)

5. Jem and Scout go to Cal's church. (2nd Year June)

6. Mrs. Dubose dies. (2nd Year June)

7. Scout keeps the mob from attacking Atticus. (2nd Year August)

8. Atticus loses Tom Robinson's case. (2nd Year August)

9. Scout attends Aunt Alexandra's party. (2nd Year September)

10. Scout almost dies, is saved by Boo, and walks him home. (2nd Year October/Halloween)

Any other suggestions for my project? I'm drawing pictures.


Wow James that answer was really enlightening. Thanks a lot. (Sarcasm) Plus we have 2 weeks left of school and my teacher hates our school but loves the kids. She's quitting, so she's kind of helping our grades with and easy project.

Others, can you please check this?

    Ask your teacher why you are not discussing tone, syntax, and diction instead of writing a diary. Move on up, like the Jeffersons. Question your assignments and demand more rigor.
