Answers to some frequently asked questions about getting started with TeacherLists.
What’s the difference between a wish list and a supply list?
Supply lists are typically a list of supplies all students are expected to bring to class, usually at the start of the school year. Typically, supply lists are provided by individual teacher or grade level.
Wish lists are most often items that you would appreciate for your class; not every student needs to bring in every item.
Your wish list may include basic essentials you use frequently like tissues and pencils, and specialty items such as a digital camera or gift cards to a teacher store.
Also, is TeacherLists really free? What’s the catch?
Yes! TeacherLists is really 100% free for schools and parents to use. Always has been, and always will be!
Our site is supported by our generous sponsors and partners, who, together with TeacherLists, provide this free service. We’re excited to make the annual back-to-school supply chore easier for schools and much more convenient for parents.
