The purpose of this study was to determine if a six-week intervention on fostering a growth mindset in 19 kindergarten students would improve their attitude toward reading. The measurement tool was The Elementary Reading Attitude Survey. This study involved the use of a pre-test/post-test design to compare data. Results showed no significant changes in attitude from pre- to post-test, though results could be attributable to many intervening factors. Research in early reading motivation and growth mindset should continue given the increased attention to the importance of early interventions and the positive impact of growth mindset for all ages.
