The action research was conducted in two cycles. To find the significant improvement of the students’ vocabulary mastery, the researcher conducted tests. The tests were pre-test and post tests. The researcher analyzed the mean scores of the tests. To analyze the significant differences between pre-test and post-test, the researcher used the non-independent t-test computation. The result of the research showed that ostensive means could solve the problems occurring teaching vocabulary and improve the students’ vocabulary mastery. Using ostensive means, the students showed great interest to be actively involved in the teaching learning process. In the classroom, they were eager to join all activities and practice pronunciation. Some students could pronounce words correctly. The students could not only grasp the meaning of the vocabulary at the moment the words taught but they could also remember the vocabularies at the following meeting. Meanwhile, to find the significant difference between the students’ achievement before and after action, he used the non-independent t-test. The result showed that the t-observation is always greater than the t-table in degrees of freedom N-1 and level of significance 0,05. It showed that there was a significant improvement of the students’ vocabulary mastery before and after the research. The conclusion is the teaching vocabulary using Ostensive Means in The fifth year students of SD Negeri Ngargotirto 1 yields a good result.
