There are several good worksheets on the site regarding this.

Sometimes, I play a game with my students.  I give students a picture with an action and a written time.  One student asks  another student � �What were you doing at 3:00 a.m. � �  A student with the corresponding time tells what they were doing at that  specific time according to their picture. 
If you find funny pictures it will be fun  and it will reinforce past continuous at a set time.
