In learning English, one of the cores of the learning process is the vocabulary. Young learners learn English by imitating.As stated by Harmer (2011) they respond to meaning even if they do not understand individual words. Their understanding does not come just from the explanation, but also from what they see and hear and, crucially, have a chance to touch and interact with. Teaching vocabulary to young learners using media, especially visual media will be effective for teaching vocabulary mastery.

This study was conducted to find the appropriate specifications for picture-to-word game for second graders.This study will also implement the visual in the picture-to-word media called Picture Matching Gamefor the second graders.

Comprising the six steps, i.e.,analyzing learner characteristics; stating objectives; select, modify, and design materials; utilize materials; require learner participation, and evaluate and revise.            The discussion show that the Picture Matching Game was appropriate for second graders’ and can be used in the second grader's vocabulary mastery. The result of the try-out process was the children seemed enthusiastic about joining the game, and the use of the game also simple and easy. The revision of the media was the content in the manual, laminating the cards, and the picture of some vocabularies.In conclusion, the appropriate specification for second graders was the picture must be colorful and clear, the size and the thickness of the media should be thick and strong, the object is chosen also should be found in students’ environment and surroundings.
