Vocabulary is the important language component in learning English. Students who are rich in vocabulary will be able to develop the 4 language skills as reading, writing, listening, and speaking. On the contrary, students who are poor in vocabulary will have difficulty in developing those 4 skills. Unfortunately, vocabulary has become the most neglected area of learning schools. In addition, the way of learning vocabulary and the material used by the teachers are mostly monotonous and make the students get bored easily. And in this paper is a report of a classroom action research conducted in a vocabulary class at the seventh grade. After finding the existing teaching learning process in the vocabulary class was not quite interesting and rewarding to the students, a new teaching plan was designed to motivate students in teaching learning and mastering vocabulary. The plan consists of some steps; opening the lesson, giving students the input knowledge before reading the text by eliciting and giving guided questions, distributing the copies of magazine article, explaining how to master the new words including part of speech, and the last distributing the copies of worksheet. In this case, the implementation of extensive reading materials is intended to improve students' vocabulary mastery, especially in part of speech. Based on the data obtained from classroom observations, students' work, and students' response to questionnaire at the end of the research, the researcher and the teacher found that after implementation of extensive reading materials, students' vocabulary mastery was getting better and students could be motivated during the vocabulary class.
