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! 🙌

    Just last week I found out that I would be in my own room teaching up to 25 students. This last year, I just collaborated with other teachers in their room, so not a lot of supplies were needed. I definitely don’t have enough to buy all that I need, but I want to make this next year as comfortable and easy as possible. I work in a low income area, and would love to have supplies ready for my kiddos that won’t have the means to buy supplies themselves.

    I am an incoming first year Kindergarten teacher. As a new teacher I am only just beginning to build my classroom resources and materials. I am excited to start my career as a teacher and would really appreciate any help purchasing materials for my future students to help make learning engaging and effective!

    I work in a hands-on, project-based school and am changing grade levels in the fall. Anything can help. I general spend a lot of money every single year.

    I will be starting my first year teaching in September and I am so excited!! Student teaching during a pandemic was so eye opening and I am ready to go and cannot wait to have my own classroom and get ready for a new school year, yes, even though this year isn’t even done yet.

    I basically have nothing so there is a lot on my wish list but anything would be helpful 💕 I want my classroom to be an inclusive, diverse safe space for my kiddos where they feel like the classroom is a family!

    Greetings! I teach 6th grade science. Middle schoolers are extremely curious about the world around them and are most fully engaged when participating in activities that are both challenging and fun. I plan on using the items from my classroom list either as props to engage students in class and/or to conduct scientific investigations and demonstrations. My goal in the classroom is to create a dynamic, fun, and challenging learning environment for my students. Your help is greatly appreciated! Best wishes, Cristiane Skey

    What a crazy year! But we made it! My name is Nicole Carr. I am a first grade teacher at a Title 1 school. This means that more that 75% of our students are on free lunch. I know it’s summer but it’s never too early to prepare. Our budgets have been cut on supplies so anything you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    I am a first year second grade teacher for the upcoming school year. My passion is to educate and inspire children. I want my classroom to have the necessary tools that it needs to provide opportunities for my students to learn and grow. Any contribution to the list would help these kiddos tremendously. Thank you.

    I am going into my second year of teaching in a title 1 school district. I made it through this year with hardly any supplies. I would love any support to help build my classroom and have more learning tools to provide for my students! Here is my list:

    Hi! 👋🏻 I’m moving from teaching elementary to teaching middle school this year. I would greatly appreciate any help to clear my list. I need some new lesson plan/grading books and some other basic supplies. Thanks to anyone who helps! 😊

    Greetings! As I am entering my fourth year of teaching fourth grade, I realized there are certain classroom items that need to be updated and others that are extremely useful. I am grateful for anything that is donated. Thank you in advance for investing in my students!
