Abstract


The discussion on English vocabulary teaching is not a new thing, especially when it is about the technique and method used in the teaching-learning process. The purpose of this paper is to disseminate the result of community service experience in teaching vocabulary for elementary students by using thematic songs. This activity is conducted to different grade students that belong to a reading community called Taman Baca Masyarakat Kudi that is located in one of Banyumas subdistricts. The use of songs is in accordance with our community service purpose that is to motivate the students that English is fun to learn. Teaching vocabulary especially to young learners should be fun and and the teacher should avoid monotonous activities. However, some teachers are still stuck in the convensional method, for example by asking students to memorize a stack of vocabulary items without taking into account student’s boredom in doing such task. Songs are considered effective to be used in teaching children because they can trigger children’s creativity and curiousity especially in dealing with vocabulary acquisition.
