Here, once again, is Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day rendered as a context clues worksheet on the verb reprove. It’s used both intransitively and transitively. It means “to scold or correct usually gently or with kindly intent,” “to express disapproval of : CENSURE,” and “to express rebuke or reproof.”
It’s a solid verb, but perhaps not one students must know. In any case, I’ve done one of my jobs for the day.
