M: Watch video, copy derivatives, make new flash cards
T: Lesson with me; Do first half of exercises
W: Do second half of exercises
R: Correct exercises
Sometimes they hit a rough spot (especially in LCII) and I'd slow down, taking two weeks for each lesson and supplementing with workbook pages from Ludere Latine. My daughter also worked through Latin's Not so Tough Books 3 and 4 to give her extra practice.

Monday - Quiz on info from the week before
Tuesday - We follow the guide on the left... Salve amicus Latina, Salve Magistra; Oremus; Adeste Fideles; recite conjucations, ending, decline, etc. After all that (we start every day, except Monday, with that), we cover the new lesson orally. We go through all the words, the motto, and whatever new form we're learning twice, once at the start and once at the end. We'll memorize the new form by writing it on the board and erasing random words until ds can chant the whole thing without the words on the board. We discuss any new grammar and also the meaning or history behind the motto.
Wednesday - Starts the same as Tuesday, but we'll do 1/3 of the exercises after we're done. We also chant the new words, motto, and form at the beginning and end. This is the day we cover the derivatives.
Thursday - Same, except he does the second 1/3 of the exercises.
Friday - Take a wild guess
