This thesis research has its main focus in the field of education, related of course, with the teaching of English language. Since the teaching process has an incredible amount of educational materials that support and strengthen the development of students´ skills, we wanted to emphasize those materials that facilitate the learning of vocabulary. Specifically, the present research addresses the use of teaching materials, designed to develop the vocabulary of elementary students, and it is mentioned of course, many authors and theories. Although, many teachers make use of all possible tools to achieve their educational goals, many others leave out not only the media, but also obviate its importance. Through this thesis are exposed not only different teaching materials, but also strategies and activities linked to teaching vocabulary, which can help language teachers to build a clearer perspective on how to use the resources around them to achieve in students meaningful and creative learning. When it comes to vocabulary, people think about an extensive set of individual words, which is not far from reality. However, it involves much more than that. Regarding vocabulary, we can also include idioms, expressions, chunks or lexical phrases. In addition, students are able to communicate successfully with others when they have enough words to express themselves. Otherwise, possessing an extensive vocabulary or learning a limited one, but in the most significant way, makes a difference in the cognitive process of a student. As language skills are gaining more and more strength within the set of knowledge,vocabulary acquisition-learning is vital in the learning process as well. Understand, manage and acquire vocabulary, might be crucial, even above another sub skill or ability, and it could represent the key to the understanding of children and what allow them to understand what they hear and read in school. Therefore, vocabulary can build scholastic success. In order to support this thought many ideas and author´s theories are exposed in this research, which pursues to analyze the effect of the materials mentioned before, in teaching vocabulary in the English language
