If students have trouble dragging pictures across the board, demonstrate this process yourself. Sometimes it takes more than one try to get the picture ready to move. Explain to students that they should not take their finger off the SMART Board once they have touched the picture. The drag function words best when the student's finger stays in contact with the board.
