Hi Valerie,

great idea to involve the people who are working with your system day by day

I love the dot - versions - This is in fact a solution to this difficult
problem - the symbol shows the thumb directing to the right or up (???)
while it is meant to be sticking straight towards me !!

I attached a gif. It shows the examples from your text - and workbook :
chapter 3, group 10 page 77
I understood the sign in the middle as if the thumb is directing towards me
(for example my mouth in the German sign for Kakao) It feels strange looking
at the thumb written this way on top of the square - but I got used to it -
forearm up, thumb sticking straight towards me ...)

Looking at you presentation with the dots -- well the sign No 5 shows the
thumb to the right - I got confused - can you explain once more --
I guess lateron I would love to use the dot - version - it seems more
pictural which is in consensus with the whole system

Thanks for sharing your construction - work ;-)

All the best
Stefan ;-)
