I found an inexpensive way to hand back student's papers that is very easy and doesn't take a lot of time or classroom space. I purchased one of those hanging file folder bins with a handle lid at Walmart (or Target) for about $4. I put a hanging file in it for each student with their name on it. When I'm finished correcting papers I put them next to the bin and my teacher helper files them away. At the end of the day the students empty their folder into their take home folder. I don't have the problem of papers being shoved into desks.
