Penerapan Permainan Kartu Bergambar dalam Meningkatkan Karakter dan Kemampuan Membaca Peserta Didik Sekolah Dasar
Based on observations made at SD Negeri KIP Maccini Makassar City in class II A, information was obtained that students have not been able to show reading skills and the weak character of students is marked by a lack of respect for students towards teachers and their peers. Therefore, teachers are required to create a conducive classroom environment to improve the character of students' initial reading skills. One of the efforts developed by the method of picture card games in this learning is expected to improve the character of language, discipline and respect between others. In addition, students will be more interested in learning and make it easier for students to learn to read. This research uses the type of classroom action research (Classroom Action Research). Based on the results obtained in cycle 1, the majority of students have not completed their learning outcomes. Meanwhile, the results of the research at the end of the second cycle of action showed that the improvement of the student's character had reached the success indicator determined by the researcher, namely 80% of the total number of students in the complete category. While in the second cycle, which has reached the specified indicators and has shown a very good improvement, it is proven in all aspects. Apart from that, the students' initial reading ability in cycle II has also improved well.
