As a mother to sons, I’m always looking for ways to help them get motivated and stay motivated, especially when it comes to sticking with something that might be tough. If they have a tough test coming up or if they’re trying to learn a new sport, we want them to be willing to try and keep trying, even when it feels like they’re not getting anywhere.
And that’s why I love these motivational quotes for boys! They’re short, sweet, and easy to remember. They’d make great memory work for students. You could also use them as copywork exercises. That way, your boys can get some handwriting practice and some motivation at the same time!
If your sons like these quotes, they’ll love these inspirational baseball quotes as well!
When it comes to boys, many of them HATE to read, unfortunately. For this reason, more than any others, I love motivational quotes for boys. They are usually pretty short, so my boys have no problems reading them. I shouldn’t say “problems” because my boys are good readers. However, 2 out of 3 (or out of 4 if you count my husband) hate to read. The oldest boy reads, but he is pretty particular. I, on the other hand, read all words, even cereal boxes. 🙂
