I am wondering if you mistyped that you stretch first and last.
You should warm up first and stretching should be the last thing you do.

There is so much conflicting information on the internet,but usually you are supposed to rest whatever body part you worked out for 48 hours in order to give the muscles time to repair. I would think it would be okay to do the abs and the band work on either the same day or alternate days because you are working different muscle groups.
As far as specific routines go, if you google "resistance band workouts" or whatever you should find a lot of options.
