Doh disco

A ppt for doh disco with some links to music tracks on you tube ( or use your own music) actions are represented by symbols for SEN, 1 page per action so you can go as fast or as slow as you like to whatever music you or your students like. The last page has a selection of actions which you could add to or remove as appropriate - I ask students to take turns to lead the class they select an action and lead the group. To extend we add a direction eg roll it up, roll it down, sausage to the side etc. Have also used this in maths by adding a numeral to the action e.g. sausage 6 times. Lots of fun!
