Back-to-School Teacher Wish List

Summer is flying by and I know teacher wish list making is in full force!

With Amazon Prime Day right around the corner (next week!), I thought it would be perfect timing to collect and share Amazon wish lists from my Title 1 or first-year teacher readers who could use some help getting their classrooms ready.

I would love to focus specifically on the classroom wish list for teachers who don’t receive enough assistance from their district or PTA throughout the year. I know the needs these teachers are facing can be overwhelming and heartbreaking with items ranging from basic needs like underwear and laundry detergent to snacks, school supplies, holiday party items and so much more.

I am so proud and appreciative of this incredibly generous community and I know that together we can help make a huge impact this year for our teachers (students and parents)!

Now let’s help clear these wish list items for these incredible educators!

How do I create an Amazon teacher wish list?

If you need help creating your wish list in Amazon, here is a website with instructions for How to Set Up and Share an Amazon Classroom Wish List.

Do I have to include a mailing address in my Amazon teacher wish list?

Yes! Amazon will keep your address hidden for privacy, but it is required for us to get your items to you!

My teacher wish list isn’t ready yet. Can I still participate?

Please don’t leave a comment until your wish list is already created so it makes it easier for readers to donate. However, I will be sharing this post throughout the rest of summer to help teachers clear their list! So if your list isn’t ready yet, just post it back here when it is!

My name is Ms. Dandoy, and I am a 2nd grade teacher at a Title 1 school in Fayetteville, NC. This is my twelfth year teaching overall. Our school is located in a high poverty area. I know many of the students don't always look forward to the holidays or long breaks, and I wanted to do something special for them! I had a class pillowcase made for me when I was in first grade, and I still have it! I would like to give each of my students a pillowcase to be decorated with their classmates' handprints. I would really appreciate any help! Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi, I teach grades 6-8 music at an urban Title 1 Middle School in Providence, RI. My students are predominantly Latinx and almost all students qualify for free/reduced lunch. We are trying to grow our collection of classroom instruments and supplies so it will be 1:1 instead of 3 or 4 students sharing the few things we do have. Any donations help.

Hi. I'm Ms. Donovan of Wake Forest iSTEM Magnet Elementary School in Wake Forest NC. I'm the ESL teacher and instructional facilitator. I've been teaching here at our school for 11 years and teaching in Title schools for 17 years. We are a Title 1 school and we are in need of many supplemental texts for our EL curriculum. We believe it is this supplemental texts that help our students learn to love to read. Please support our cause of having complete sets in all of our classrooms. We appreciate any support greatly! Thank you!
