This study was conducted to improve students’ vocabulary achievement through English kids’ song media in the first academic year of 2022/2023 at SD Negeri 1 Sari Mekar. The subjects of this study consisted of 33 fifth-grade students. This study employed Classroom Action Research (CAR). The research design used in this study was a collaborative classroom action research, which means that the researcher collaborated with the real fifth-grade teacher of SD Negeri 1 Sari Mekar as a collaborator and an observer. This study consisted of two cycles. Each cycle consisted of two meetings that contained four phases; planning, acting, observing, and reflecting, as illustrated by Kurt Lewin. The data for this study were acquired through observation, post-tests, and interviews. The result of the observations showed that all aspects of the observation checklist were fulfilled and completed well by the researcher in each meeting in the first and second cycles. The improvement could be seen in the increase of students’ mean scores from 64 in the preliminary study, 72 in the first cycle, to 79 in the second cycle. The result of the interview showed that all students gave positive responses to the implementation of English kids’ song media to improve students’ vocabulary achievement in teaching and learning process. Moreover, English kids’ song can be an alternative media in teaching and learning vocabulary. In conclusion, implementing English kids’ song media to the fifth-grade students of SD Negeri 1 Sari Mekar in the first academic year of 2022/2023 can improve students’ vocabulary achievement.
