Students will "retell or dramatize traditional literature." --Massachusetts English/Language Arts Curriculum Framework
Have students try on their clothes as you retell the story. If they don't have one of the items, they can pretend to put it on. (As a special treat, actually go outside after getting dressed.)
Try retelling the story as children are dressing for recess. Take pictures of the activity and create a class book.
