This study mainly focuses on teaching vocabulary to very young learners through games and songs. A pre and post test were developed and administered to 46 students at Gülen Muharrem Pakoğlu primary school in the first term of 2008-2009 academic year. For Group A, the process of vocabulary teaching had been carried out through games and for Group B, the same process had been carried out through songs. For both groups, a point to test had been applied. Valid and reliable results have been achieved with the use of pre and post tests. In the light of the findings of the research, it has been figured out that teaching vocabulary to very young learners through games has been more effective.
