Abstract

This study aimed to assess the impact of crossword puzzle media (TTS) on vocabulary enhancement among 4th grade students at SD Muhammadiyah 2 Sidoarjo. Employing a one-group pretest-posttest design, data was collected through observation, test questions, and documentation. The sample consisted of 28 students from class 4 al-farobi. The findings revealed a substantial increase in students' vocabulary, with pre-test and post-test averages of 60.71 and 82.50, respectively. The paired sample t-test confirmed a significant effect (p < 0.05) of crossword puzzles (TTS) on vocabulary enhancement. This study underscores the efficacy of utilizing crossword puzzles as an effective pedagogical tool for augmenting student vocabulary.
