It’s Time to Help Teachers Clear The List!

With back to school season right around the corner, thousands of teachers across the country are working to prepare their classrooms for the new 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.

Let’s help support teachers with the Clear The List movement! ❤️

You can help by donating items from teacher’s 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!

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 page. Select ‘Create a List’ from the drop-down menu.
  • Choose the Wish list and 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.

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

    I am a Kindergarten Teacher at a Title 1 school. I started teaching mid year last school year and am trying to build my library as well as hand deliver supplies to my students so they all have equal supplies and what is needed to get the max out of online learning. Anything is appreciated!! 😊

    Hey 👋🏻 everyone! My name is Jessica and I will be in my second year of teaching but first in third grade!

    I am originally from Texas where I taught second grade my first year of teaching. After having my
    Son in June of 2019 we moved to North Carolina for military purposes so I stayed home with him his first year of life.

    I return this year to the classroom and am super excited to be going back even with all that is going! Between tackling a new state, new classroom, becoming a mom and surviving our first deployment anything would be appreciated for my new room!

    My name is Alexa and this list is for my First Grade classroom in Pennsylvania. I teach about 21 young learners at a Title One Elementary School. With the struggles of the world, I am creating a list of items to support a physically and mentally healthy classroom. My goal is to have an inclusive classroom where my student feel empowered to learn, grow, make mistakes, and feel loved. Every child is a world changer. Thank you for helping us!

    Hi everyone! I am very excited to start my first year of teaching which will be in the 5th grade. I have created a list that will support my learners as well as make them feel comfortable and adjust to this new “normal.” 🙂

    I love this idea so much and I’d be so grateful for any and every contribution! I’m a Special Education teacher working with grades K-2 in Raleigh, NC. I recently moved and feel like I’m starting from scratch with few supplies. 🍎 Here’s my amazon wishlist link:

    Hello I am a third grade teacher at a title 1 school outside of Orlando, Florida. A majority of our students are English language learners and our entire school receives free lunch due the fact that over 90 percent of our student population qualifies for it already. Many of my students could not complete work at home after the pandemic due to lack of resources. Please help my new class start the year out on the right foot! I appreciate you already for thinking about helping others!

  8. Mrs. Osmanski

    Thank you for taking the time to view any teachers’ wishlist. It is greatly appreciated by one and all! I teach At-Risk Special Education preschoolers ages 3-5 of various backgrounds. My kiddos have varing degrees of disabilities and needs. My main focus in teaching is providing educational experiences through play using hands on, interactive, role play activities. Although many precautions will be made and implemented in my COVID classroom, learning should be fun! Thank you from the kiddos as well as me should you choose to donate!

    Hi! I just moved from Texas to Arizona and this is my second year teaching, but first year teaching 4th grade. I am still trying to establish a classroom that has the supplies to make my kids feel safe and comfortable when they return from online learning. Any support is appreciated! Thank you 🙂

  10. Shana Nuble

    Hi everybody, I am a first year teacher (like many of you probably are). I work at a Title I school and would appreciate any help with getting supplies for my classroom. This would not only allow me to create a great learning environment for my students, but will help ease the stress and anxiety of being a first year teacher. I look forward to welcoming my students back to school on August 31st. Any amount of help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance!

    I’m the science department chair for a middle school in California. My list includes items for the entire department. We are trying to put together take-home kits of simple, and safe, science activities for the students to do while distance learning. I have the curriculum all set, now I just need the supplies. Thank you.

  12. Carrie Pacini

    This is my link to my amazon list. I teach a special education classroom with all behavior disorder students. We spend all day in my room. I’m the nurse, or coach, art teacher, math, reading and English teacher, lunch lady and mom.
    I love my kiddos to the moon and. Back and wouldn’t trade my classroom for another. Anything you can purchase off my list would be greatly appreciated.

    I am a Elementary music teacher in Algonac , MI

    I am looking for safe and fun ways to make music this 2020 year!

  14. Katie

    I teach first grade at a Title 1 school with minimal resources supplied by the district. My classroom is 90% funded by me and donations from friends and family. I strive to offer my students the best learning environment with the best resources available. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated! Check out my wishlist below!

  15. Jessica J.

    Hello! I teach special education to children with a wide variety of needs and abilities (academic, behavioral, social, etc)
    Since we are not classroom teachers, we are not allowed a supply list and must get everything we need from our district, or we must purchase it ourselves. It would be wonderful if anyone could help 🙂

  16. Lauren

    Hello! I’m a first-year teacher building a 3rd grade classroom in Dorchester, MA! I am excited to start the year, regardless of the changes brought about by COVID. I want to make sure my students get meaningful learning experiences whether in person or online!

  17. Angela Worley Bell

    To increase student interaction and engagement for my pre-k students at Doss Elementary in Austin, Texas, I’m creating at-home learning tool kits. My goal is to get them a few of the hands-on materials that we use the most at school so that they are not stuck staring a screen all day. Children learn best through exploration and play, with your help, I hope to make this a reality and any donation is greatly appreciated.

  18. Erik Lindblom

    I am an elementary PE teacher in Waukegan, Illinois. We are a low income, high poverty school. Nearly all free and reduce lunch. When we do get back to school from remote learning as a result of covid, I would love to treat my students to new and fun activities to help them find ways to help reduce the stress and anxiety.

    My PE wish list can be found here:
