Search for an OTG cable.they cost a few bucks online. It allows you to plug in USB peripherals like a thumb drive or a full SD-reader, or a keyboard, etc. You can even do SD Radio. To access the microSD card, you need a helper program from say Sony or SANdisk.

You can save documents, photos, videos, and music to the SD card.  One way to get the files to the SD card is via a Cloud drive, like Google Drive.  Another way is to connect the tablet to your computer via the supplied USB cable (the USB port is the charging port, i.e., see p 6 of the user manual:  https://ss7.vzw.com/is/content/VerizonWireless/Devices/Verizon/Userguides/tablet-vzw-ellipsis-10-ug....

Once the drivers load, you can then 'drag and drop' the files to the SD card.  If you want to move the files on the SD card via the tablet, you can use a file manager app from the Play Store, but I'd suggest reviewing this thread first:
