The preschool teachers are exposing the children to Show and Tell experience which will be useful when the children move on to Primary 1. It helps a child to build up self-confidence. Strongly encourage your child to participate and you can get feedback from the teachers : )

DS had always looked forward to show and tell during his pre-school days.

Isn't it a good thing to have? Do you have a shy kid who is very worried about it? One of my kids had no problem and enjoyed doing it. He didn't even prepare at home and would speak impromptu. Another one was petrified and tried all ways to avoid it. I realised later that I need to build his confidence through preparation and rehearsals at home - just a few minutes each time. I kept it short and manageable for him. I also worked with the teacher so that he was called upon to present.

Show and tell is compulsory in primary school and later on, they have to do project presentations in secondary schools etc. The sooner they get used to it the better for them. As long as they have a somewhat okay experience from the start they will be fine.
