Students in Indonesia experience problems in writing skills. Based on the study of PISA (2018), PIRLS (2015), TIMSS, EGRA USAID (2018), Ministry of Education and Culture (2016) shows that Indonesian students have quite low scores in writing skills so we need a method that can make students feel interested and challenged to write. Brain Gym is an intriguing technique to try out in order to develop this writing skill because it has been shown in numerous studies to be able to improve cognitive capacities, diverse skills, and motivation. The aim of this study was to compare students' writing abilities in experimental and control classes, to identify the profile of students' essay-writing abilities in primary schools, and to examine the learning process. A quasi experimental nonequivalent control group was utilized as the methodology. Two classes were the study's subjects. The results of a pretest and posttest on students' writing served as the research data collection method. The outcomes demonstrated that this approach had an impact on primary school kids' writing abilities. These results suggest that this approach should be applied to materials and lessons with longer time constraints.
