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

Let’s Help Teachers Clear The List! 🍎

With a new school year starting soon, thousands of teachers across the country are working to prepare their classrooms for the 2022-2023 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 struggle, leaving many teachers to pay for school supplies on their own.

It’s the perfect time to help support teachers with the Clear The List movement! ❤️

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 making a donation, 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 own classroom wish list on Amazon:

  • Head over to Amazon and hover over Account & List at the top of any Amazon.com page. 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 Amazon for products 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.

    I am finishing my degree for elementary education and will be teaching at a title 1 school in WA. I’ve gotten most of my big things and now am focusing on diverse books so all the students can see characters who look like them ❤️

    I’m a new teacher that started last week 10/10/22 to my first district job. I have 10 years of teaching experience in a small school for behavior. We were unable to decorate of have items on our desks due to the behaviors. I now work in a low-income school district and have no supplies. I would really appreciate the help.

    I’m a high school teacher at a Title 1 school in Phoenix. Looking to get some snacks for my students who are always hungry; plus, food and small items work great for bribery! Any help is much appreciated!
