Hey - I am getting ready to start teaching my first graders to write poetry over the next 4 weeks...is there a name for what poets do when they write a word in a poem so that it looks like the word? For instance, in one poem that I read which was called "Somersaults," the poet wrote only the word "somersault" like it was flipping over. Is there a specific name for this that poets do? THANK YOU!

I've always taught that poems in the shape of what they look like are picture poems (also called graphic or concrete poems). With my 4th graders we would just repeat the word over and over in the shape, for my 6th graders we would write about that topic in the shape. I found an example on-line.

Really good example of a banana...plus the site has tons of other concrete poems... http://jdc-concrete.com/POEMWK5.HTM
