informants, and document. While the techniques of collecting data are observation, interview,
and document.
After collecting the data and analysing the action by using Action Research
procedure, the writer described the result of the research. The tests were given after the
implementation of the action of each cycle (post-tests). The test consisted of twenty items. In
the first cycle, he found that there were 22 students who got the score more then 65. It means
that score achievement was 62,8. Meanwhile, the students' achievement of the post-test 2 was
better then pre-test and post-test 1, the students who got the score more than 65 in the second
cycle were 26 students, the score achievement was 74. From the two tests the writer

Finally, the writer concludes that by using songs the students can achieve the target
vocabulary well. After knowing the procedures and the result, writer presents the strengths
and weaknesses of teaching vocabulry using songs. The strengths are: (a) The students are
more interested in attending the class, (b) The students are trained to think quickly and
automatically (c) The students are motivated to be active in the class (d) singing is happy and
stress-free activity and to a positive classroom. The weaknesses are (a) the teacher must be

songs in SMP N 1 Sidoharjo Sragen was good. The use of teaching aids in Action Research is
very appropriate and helpfull in teaching learning process.
