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 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.

    It is lovely to have this space and support. I’m a 41 years old Puerto Rican Spanish teacher in Jacksonville. I’ve been teaching in the states for 2 years and I love it, but there are many needs, not only for knowledge but for somebody that shows these kids how important and worth it they are. Being an Autism And Gifted Mom has helped me realize how important is the classroom environment in the process of learning. My classroom considers all types of students, from regular to ESE Elementary classrooms. I try to create a sensorial friendly and soothing environment for little minds to get ready to learn. It is my passion to teach Spanish and share the Hispanic culture with the world.

    I appreciate your support!

    Here is my Amazon Wishlist:

    Here is to hoping!

    I am a science teacher at a small alternative high school. Our budget is struggling and I feel we do with less and less each year. I am hoping to enhance what I can provide for my students! I am thankful that there are options like this that could really make a difference for our students!
    Thank you!

    I’m a librarian in a low income school and we recently started community puzzles. It’s been great because students and staff come together to work on the puzzle. I also get a lot of requests for games. Junior high kids really need to take a break sometimes. And I’d love to be able to provide games for them to check out.

    Hi everyone! As we head into the next half of this school year, I am finding that my students (and myself) are in need of some new classroom materials and/or material refills!
    If you are willing and able, please consider donating to our classroom so that we can continue to have a fun and successful year together. Any and all donations are very appreciated! Thank you! 💕

    Greetings! I am a middle school math teacher in Kansas. I teach pre-algebra. The students in my class love math games and competitions. I have many prizes and materials on my list that would enrich the learning environment. Any and all help is appreciated!

    Hi, I am new to teaching kindergarten, and this requires a lot of new classroom tools and supplies. While the school provides what it can, we are a title 1 school and therefore we end up having to help provide supplies for our scholars as they often do not have what they need. Anything is appreciated.

    I am a new teacher, fresh out of college in Idaho. Would love some help getting my kiddos some supplies!

    We have just started a new program called Expeditionary Learning and they have a bunch of different books related under a theme that are recommended reading for when students are doing their independent research/reading. However, our district is in a money crunch and is pretty much freezing most budget items so we don’t have enough to buy extra supplies other than our basics. I would be so appreciative if we could get some of these titles at various levels so that my kids have books to read to build context and background information.
