Ms. Sue are you able to break 3/4ft.= how many inches for a 2nd. grader.

Show the child a ruler. Point out the 12 inches. You might print this ruler.

Count 3 inches and make a mark. Then count another 3 inches and make another mark. Count another 3 inches and maker another mark.
At this point the child should see that 12 inches has four groups of 3 inches each. Three of those groups equals 9 inches.
