SEN Teacher: The Tuff Tray

Custom Tuff Tray Divider

Originally posted on Collaboroo This was an idea I had when I first bought a tuff tray but was brought to life by our workshop tutor so I can’t claim all the credit. I work in a mixed ability SEN key stage 4 class. My students love practical hands on activities, some like sensory messy play and some like more structured activities. This was a way to theme an activity station to meet all needs and keep bits separate whilst the students still worked together. This was for our transport (sea) topic – more free printable resources available here.
Watch the video below to see how it works.

Buy here only £14.99 for endless possibilities.

Possible Further Adaptations to the Tough Tray

  • You could cut holes in the divider for posting between sections.
  • Even as a voting booth.
  • Put a roof on a roof,
  • Waterproofing with mastic along the bottom (You would need to seal or paint if using water.)
  • Make lower or stepped dividers
  • plastic see-through dividers – The options are really endless. Because the tray is pretty ubiquitous, if it breaks your dividers will fit the new one!

I Would love to see any pictures of how you have extended use of your tuff tray.

This book by Joanna Grace is great for starting on your sensory Journey.
