Prepare Your Child For Academic Success! Little Scholar Tablet #Giveaway @SchoolZone #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of School Zone Publishing. I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% mine. 20140819_000322_wm

    Lately I’ve been struggling with balancing the amount of time that my children spend on their electronic devices.  On one hand, I want them to be technologically savvy and able to compete in today’s modern technological times.  On the other hand, I don’t want them to become consumed with spending time on their tablets playing games that don’t always have a significant educational value.  I was very excited when I learned that School Zone, a trusted educational workbook and flash card company that I have know for years as an educator, has now taken all their educational experience and trusted content and created a kids’ tablet called Little Scholar™.

    Little Scholar™ features and A+ app that allows parents to track their child’s academic progress and identify how much time their child has spent on each individual topic or curriculum area. Parents can even use an App Management Tool to choose from the preloaded 200 apps, videos, songs and e-books that are active on Little Scholar, so the can tailor the content to fit the learning needs of their children. The apps are valued at nearly $400 worth FREE content. There’s no need to buy additional apps although they are available should you decide to expand your child’s progress.

    This is definitely what I have been looking for to immerse my boys in technology that allows them to be productive and that has educational value.  I’m secure now in knowing that my son spends time on this tablet actually learning and having a great time doing so!  The entire time he is engaged with his Little Scholar he is actually learning reading, spelling, math, and other essential skills that he will need in order to excel in the third grade next year.

    My son really enjoyed watching Charlie & Company, a new educational video series with live action and animation. It stars Charlie the Golden Retriever and his best friend, Miss Ellie, who embark on educational adventures. The show features performances and original music by Brian Vander Ark of The Verve Pipe.  He also loved showing his creativity by using the rear- and front-facing camera. The tablet allows him to play with silly special effects and save pictures to his own personal gallery.

    Little Scholar™ is recommended for kids ages 3-7 and features an 8-inch screen and runs on a Google Android 4.2.2 operating system. My son just turned eight and the content on the tablet was even appropriate for his learning needs.  It is available now and has an MSRP of $149.99-199.99.  It will be available at ToysRUs this fall.  The best part is that our Sponsor has given us a Little Scholar Tablet to give away to one of you for your child to learn from!

Let’s Discuss:  How do you think the Little Scholar™ Tablet will help to prepare your child for back to school?

  1. Alayne Langford says

    The Scholar Tablet will help my grandchild to do better by being more interested in school activities. As we know, schools are headed into using mostly technological tools. By the time these children get to high school, they will probably use a higher level tablet. I want my grandchild to have the opportunity to start at a young age and make learning fun!! Thank you!!

  2. Finally a tablet that parents don’t have to worry about what their children are doing! I love that this company realized that the kids of today are going to be on electronics one way or another and came up with a solution!

  3. Elizabeth Dalton says

    My little guy is already really behind in school. This sounds like something that would be beneficial in helping him catch up with everything. I love that parents can keep track of them too! Love it!

  4. Janet Watson says

    I think it will benefit my grandson because it will be a great tool to use for extra practice on skills like letters, numbers, and early beginnings of reading/phonics. It will make him more prepared for Kindergarten.

  5. Janet Watson says

    Entered $50 Petco Gift Card giveaway, too!

  6. This looks like an amazing tablet for younger kids and of course educational too. But the feature I like best is how you can track their progress. We are all busy so this is amazing so uyou can figure out how to best help them move forward in their learning.

  7. Yesenia Torres says

    Esta tablet le sería de mucha ayuda a mi hija de 5 que esta aprendiendo a leer.

  8. I try to limit tech time, too, but think that educational programs are quite helpful. The ability to track their progress would be quite handy, too.

  9. I get so jealous seeing all the great tech for kids today. Seems my girls were born just a couple years too early!

  10. Yes and he will have his own tablet. Currently my tablet is full of learning apps that he loves.

  14. This would totally help my girls. I find that they learn easily when fun is involve. They don’t realize they are learning which is the greatest.

  15. with all of the technology everywhere today it is just as important to have children learn before and outside of the classroom as it is to still maintain a limit to the time spent on such devices.

  16. Wild Orchid says

    I think this would be great for my son because it would make learning fun. He loves to imitate me, so I know he would like to have his own tablet like mommy.

  42. That’s pretty neat! They learn to use these things so early now – might as well let them have their own sooner rather than later, so they don’t keep “borrowing” mom and dad’s!

  43. Rebecca Bryant says

  48. Jeanine @ says

    Great giveaway! It also looks like a great little tablet!

  49. Veronica Solomon says

    That looks like a great tablet to subsidize their school work and learning. I’ll have to see if that would work for my son

  51. My son is 9 but I have a couple of daycare kids who could use it 🙂

  66. Richard Hicks says

    I think this tablet will be a big help. It has all of the fun learning apps on it. Kids today have come to expect everything electronic!

  67. This tablet will really help my four year old daughter. She really wants to learn when I am homeschooling my boys. This way she can work on her education when I’m not available.

  76. My daughter is in need of extra reading assistance. I think this tablet would engage her and help her with sounding out words, reading fluency, and spelling!

  77. Christine Jessamine says

    this would be a tremendous help with teaching my daughter how to read. what a wonderful learning tool.

  78. Entered Snoopy giveaway!

  79. Sharon Schoepe says

    I love that it is preloaded and can be tailored for the individual child. I would much rather know that my son is playing something educational instead of switching off the educational app and playing Angry Birds like he does on the iPad

  80. Laurajj Jacobson says

    Oh I think this would help Carter with his math skills! He loves the tablets and playing the little kids games..and I love how it teaches so many of the basic skills while they are having fun too!

  86. Entered the Kohl’s giveaway too.

  93. probably help him learn by making it fun

  94. It would help him learn to read and how to count!

  95. Caroline Wampler says

    I think it will help because instead of playing a game for fun with no point- this will be games with education. Its a great concept!

  96. This would be perfect for teaching my son colors , letters, numbers and so much more before he begins school. This tablet would give him a great head start.


  97. I think this tablet would benefit my great nephew that lives with me and has just started Kindergarten. It would help him with learning everything while he is having fun with it. I love educational toys and gadgets. Everything is tech now and this would be a great headstart for a child.

  98. Amanda Whitley says

    it would help him learn problem solving and so much more. my son loves playing on the tablet and i love that this is educational.

  99. This would be awesome for my son. I love that it is all educational. It is great for trips in the car.

  100. Carolyn Daley says

    I believe the tablet will make my nephew interested in learning through interactive games. I believe kids do better academically when you make learning fun instead of just boring and tedious to them. By learning how to solve math problems, read, and pronounce words through interactive games I believe kids will do better in school by applying the abilities they learned from the tablet to challenges in school.

  101. I believe that it will help her with her reading, no doubt there. She will also be able to do the other apps which will sharpen her skills in things like phonics and math. Of course, with homeschooling, this would be a wonderful tool for her.
