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 teach students with Emotional and Behavioral issues in Kansas City MO. We have kids from two states and six counties that are bussed in so we can help give them the skills they need to return to neighborhood schools. We have a unique mixture of urban, suburban, and rural areas. My kids have missed a lot of academics due to behavior. I want them to feel as normal as possible.

    I teach kindergarten dual language. My district is using distance learning for first quarter. I want to distribute toolkits to each student so they have everything they need to begin this new adventure of online learning. The district is supplying iPads for the students. I depleted all my supplies in March creating toolkits for my 40 students plus some former students to help them finish strong. Students will not be able to share supplies when we return to the classroom so each of my students will need their own supplies.

    I am a new 4th-grade teacher in Los Angeles trying to build my classroom library. I am compiling a list of books featuring diverse characters so that my students will see themselves in the books they read, as well as learn about others! I also collect books that support students’ social and emotional learning in developing essential practices such as empathy and growth mindset. I’d really like to get books in the hands of my students while they are learning from home this year. Thank you!! 🙂

    Hi! I am a 4th grade teacher working at a Title I school in Chicago. I am hoping to get resources to be able to make remote learning toolboxes for each of my students. Thank you to everyone for all of your help! It is very much appreciated 🙂

    I am teaching three year olds this year. We are very concerned about learning in a face to face meeting. I have added some things to my list that would help us stay socially distanced and still have fun learning. Help us by purchasing items on clear the list. Many Thanks

    Help us have fun and stay socially distanced in our 3 year old classroom.

    Hello! Between managing the beginning of virtual teaching, setting up a classroom within my home, and eventually phasing back into our classrooms within the school, access to supplies can be limited… as they usually are. Each year we are given a small budget for supplies, yet spend hundreds of dollars more out of pocket. I teach high school emotional support, where a lot of my students are minorities and gang affiliated. Just trying to give them the best education possible to help eliminate the school to prison pipeline.

    I teach bilingual Pre-K in a Title 1 school in El Paso, TX. My classroom is new and I have very few hands on learning materials which are essential for not only early childhood learners but also English language learners. This will help tremendously to build a solid foundation for a student at the beginning of their educational journey using research based and developmentally appropriate lessons and activities.

    I teach 7 th grade Math in Firt Wayne, IN. We return in person instruction on MONDAY! I am responsible for my online learners as well ( students had a choice). To say I’m anxious is an understatement. I’ve been teaching for 14 years. I’m so excited to meet my new students and know that I’ve been called to this profession for a reason. Praying the God will give my the strength and peace of mind to guide my students this year during this difficult time. Your help and generosity is appreciated! Thank you!

    I am creating virtual therapy boxes for my preschool special education students. Each student will have a “box” at home that I will add to in order to work virtually with them through zoom. I can’t wait to see their faces when they are gifted these boxes!

    Thank you so much for allowing us to post!! We teach 2’s in Central Pa!!!!

    Hi, I am a Reading Specialist in a K-8 Public Charter School. A lot of our students come from inner city public schools originally so it is hard to get supplies sent in for the classrooms. As the Reading Specialist I need to keep up with my book collection to keep students engaged in our classroom learning. I also have organizational items on my list as the I see several small groups of students daily for Reading support. Thank you so much for thinking of me and my students!

    First year teacher never imagined that I would start off teaching during a pandemic. But here we are trying to keep our students safe and help them grow. I will be teaching at a low income school where 95% of our student get free or reduced lunch. Our school can’t provide much for us so any help I could get would be great thank you all for your support

    I am a teacher and I am so incredibly thankful for organizations like yours. They genuinely make teaching easier by finding us in ways that we are necessarily funded in other venues. I know all teachers are incredibly thankful for this. I teach fifth grade GT in South Carolina!

    Im a 6th Grade math teacher in NJ. As I prepare to go back to school in these uncertain times, I’m looking for some supplies for students that are in financial need so they do not need to share within the classroom. We want to continue learning in a safe and healthy environment. Thank you 😊❤️

    I teach addicted males aged 12-21 at a residential treatment facility. We are a Title I school with 50% of the students on an IEP. My students are from low socioeconomic areas. I teach math and English and am an Intervention Specialist. Thank you for looking at my list!
