What is “Clear the List”? It’s a nationwide movement to support teachers by purchasing items for their school supply lists.

While school may be out for summer, teachers are already working to prepare their classrooms for the new 2024-2025 school year, and this typically means stocking up on school supplies!

Did you know that many teachers pay for a majority of classroom supplies out of their own pockets? Yes, it’s true! Classroom supplies are not cheap and some school districts and families are struggling. This leaves many teachers to pay for school supplies themselves.

Teachers always go the extra mile for their students, so let’s show them how much we appreciate them by fulfilling their supply lists!

You can help by donating items from teachers’ Amazon shopping lists!

Teachers and educational professionals can head over to Amazon, create a classroom wish list, and then share their lists publicly. Even better, anyone can ‘donate’ items that are on the list, and after donating, donors can even leave a note or message letting the teacher know how much they are appreciated. So awesome!

Even better, if you post your list on social media and tag Amazon with #clearthelist, you may find that your list is cleared BY Amazon! So cool!

Teachers, follow these steps to make your classroom wish list on Amazon:

  • Head over to Amazon and hover over Account & List at the top. Select ‘Create a List’ from the drop-down menu and name your list.
  • Hover over the three dots More menu on the right, and click Manage List to update your shipping address (this is important!) and other preferences like whether you want the list to be private or public. You can also designate whether your list is for an organization and if so, you’ll have the option to provide the website address of the organization.
  • Click ‘Save’ and then you can start adding items to your list!
  • To add items to your wish list, simply browse for products on Amazon and then click ‘Add to List’ under the Buy box on the right-hand side of any item’s product detail page.
  • Only list owners can make changes through Manage List. Both list owners and collaborators will be able to add and remove items.

If you’re a teacher, be sure to share your teacher list in the comments below so that readers can help clear the list! 🙌

Plus, treat yourself to something special with these teacher discounts!

    Thanks so much for your support! I’m heading to a new school (Seylar Elementary) and a new grade level (3rd) this year. I’m excited to bring the love of learning to a new bunch of students! Thanks for considering supporting our mission to help all students shine bright through kindness and community this year. ❤️

    I am going into my 10th year of teaching elementary school! My first 8 years I taught at a Title 1 elementary school in Springdale, AR. Then, I took a big leap of faith and moved 6,000 miles across the world to teach at an international school in the Marshall Islands. This will be my second year teaching 4th grade and I’m absolutely loving it! I have fallen in love with the students, families, and island lifestyle! Teaching is my passion and my students are considered family to me. I always go the extra mile to support them, which usually leads to me using my personal funds. There is a huge lack of resources in the Marshall Islands, so I’m sharing my classroom wish list in hopes that others want to help support!

    Hello! This will be my fifth year as a bilingual teacher. I’m passionate about creating a supportive and enriching learning environment, aiming to make this school year memorable and successful for my students. I want them to enjoy school, have the essentials for hygiene, and receive rewards for their hard work. I hope to grow my classroom library with books that my students will love, helping them see reading as a fun activity. Your generosity and support mean the world to me, and I’m incredibly grateful for any assistance. Thank you so much for your consideration! 🙏😊

    We are a Title I public school in San Antonio, TX in a tight knit supportive community of hard working families . I am thrilled to have 2nd graders in my class this year. They are the perfect age to explore, discover and it is always a joy to feed their enthusiasm for learning with interactive activities. Your help in our class will be highly appreciated!
