To sign good, take your flat, open dominant hand with fingers together, and starting from your chin, move your hand in a downward arc. You may also have your flat non-dominant hand, palm facing up, to act as a support for your dominant hand. When you sign good without the resting palm, it looks like the ASL sign for thank you.
The sign for good looks like you are blowing out a kiss, but your hand arcs down a bit lower.
Use good with things that your baby enjoys, particularly food. When your baby is visually pleased by an experience, use the good sign. When you say emotional signs like good, use a rising inflection to help communicate the meaning to your baby.
Adjectives or descriptors are a great way to help babies express complex emotions. Knowing the concept of good also helps with self-esteem.

ADMIN – Hi Gina,
Thank you for your feedback, we have made corrections and loaded an updated file.
I am a little confused. The sign for ‘Good’ seems to be pretty much identical to the sign for ‘Thank You’. Am I missing something? Thanks for a great site, btw, our daughter loves her signs!
ADMIN: The easy way to remember the difference between these two signs is as follows: For thank you the hand is vertical for good the hand is horizontal.
