Typically, the order of the body parts should be in the order that they are put on the hook. Like in green butt skunk you will tie in the tail, the green chenille, wind the chinelle forward, tie it off, tie in tinsel and black chinelle, wind the chinelle forward and tie off, then the tinsel and tie off, then tie in the black hackle and wind it, tie it off, and then tie in the calf tail wing, and finish the head. If thread is not specified, head color is the thread color.
The other key to order and balance of the pattern is from looking at the photograph. Most books don't have detailed pattern directions, and only with my first ties of complex patterns do I want one. Recently I tied General Practitioner and liked directions, but now I don't want any.
All three of the patterns that you list are pretty basic, maybe what you need is a fly tying class to understand better what a fly pattern is and how to execute tying it.

I am printing some of these flies, to add to my fly box. every time i go to see instruction's on how to tie them, there is always the same fly every time. How can i tie these flies with out know ing the step's to them? It's really frusterating when you want to tie a fly and have no idea a to what to tie on the hook first! Is there any instruction's for any of these flies? I know that alot of them are basic and simple, but for those who don't tie that much and or are learning to tie, WE NEED STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION'S. Sorry to sound upset, but it's true.
thanks for any info
P.S these are the flies i have printed so far, JAY'S GREEN RAFIA STONE,GREEN BUTT SKUNK, GRANNY
