The mathematics learning process in elementary schools is still focused on the more active teachers in the classroom than students. Students are not much given the opportunity to gain direct experience in the learning process so that it causes low understanding of mathematical concepts and mathematical communication skill of students. The aim of this research are to obtain a description of the effect of ethnomathematicsbased SAVI (Somatic, Auditory, Visualization, Intellectually) approach on mathematical communication skill of students in geometry in 5^{th} grade one of elementary school in Serang, Indonesia and to gain an overview of the results of mathematical communication skill of students using ethnomathematicsbased SAVI approach better than the use of conventional learning. The research was quantitative research and employed quasi experimental research which is nonequivalent control group design. This research was located at one of elementary school in Serang, Indonesia. The subjects of this research were 38 students of class A as an experimental class and 38 students class B as a control class. The data were collected through test which is mathematical communication skill test and interviews and analyzed by using data processing SPSS 21 version programs. The result showed that the average of pretest of mathematical communication skill in experimental class is 40,92 and the control class is 34,74. After given different treatment and the final mathematical communication skill test, the average value is 72,11 in experimental class and 60,53 for the control class. The mean value of gain is 0,53 in experimental class including the medium category. So based on these results, it can be concluded that the ethnomathematicsbased SAVI approach affects to mathematical communication skill of students.
