Perfect practice makes perfect! Keep in mind that elite-level Olympic lifters train these movements as often as possible without overtraining. The trick is to perfect the neuromuscular pathways. Perhaps next cycle, perform front squats one day, jerks or push-presses the next and power cleans (from the hang or from the deck) the next. Basically, coach Rut's ME-Blackbox.

So, you could do:
WOD
front squat
WOD
rest day
WOD
Split Jerk, Push Jerk
WOD
Rest Day
WOD
Clean
WOD

Conversely, I've been thinking of implementing this schedule:

Front Squat
WOD
Jerk
rest day
WOD
Clean
WOD

On that, I would switch the order each week. Either might be worth a try as it allows you to practice the movements themselves a bit more each week, even though it doesn't come close to matching the frequency of a typical O-lifting program.
