1. First click the yellow button and select a green flag - drag it down to the bottom of the screen.

 

2. Next, click the blue button to show where you would like to move your sprite - drag it next to the green flag.  (You can choose as many movements as you like - don't worry if you change your mind - we can debug - just swipe the movement you don't want anymore back up on the tool bar).
