We call it the "Paper Pass Back" (clever, I know.) Basically, all the work for the week that needs to be returned gets put into the "Out Box". On Fridays, the students line up at the Out Box, I hand them a stack of papers, and they get to work putting those papers on the desk of the rightful owner. When the stack of papers is done, the student gets back in line and gets more to return. It proceeds like this until all of the papers are returned.
The students do this all WITHOUT SAYING A WORD. It is literally as quiet as a mouse in my room. I generally tend to give the quietest, most helpful student (someone who is helping to stack other students' papers neatly in a pile) a homework pass...so that helps to keep the noise down.
